Chinafish Posted August 30, 2004 Report Share Posted August 30, 2004 Hi all!! i'm having trouble trying to keep my hips square when doing degages (well and grand battements as well - as long as it's anything that involves lifting one foot off the floor) The only way that I could prevent from falling to one side is to really pull myself towards the barre. I've tried to pull myself up as high as possible and close in my tummy, tuck in tailbones, close ribcage - all that, but i still tend to fall to the side where the foot is off the floor, unless I pull myself towards the barre with my arm.... Just wondering, should I be trying to balance with minimal force on the barre, or am I supposed to pull as hard as needed to keep my hips square? Thanks!!! Fish Quote Link to comment
