Guest prokofiev Posted September 22, 2004 Report Share Posted September 22, 2004 OK, I've been working on pirouttes for a while now, with varying degrees of success (some days it seems L en dedans is great, other days I'm fine with R en dehors, some days fifth position seems like magic and others only fourth is working...) But yesterday, I had an epiphany. We'd been doing plie, retire, plie, piroutte kind of preparation combinations in center for a while, and yesterday we did BOURRES first. (Oops, two e's or one?) Anyway, I was just fine - felt pulled up, supported, centered, turned out, the whole thing. And darned if those pirouttes didn't just come out of nowhere! I even did doubles, to both sides! (only en dedans, I wasn't feeling THAT lucky...) My poor teacher nearly fell over with surprise! So here's the question: how do I bottle that exuberant bourre feeling? Any suggestions?
