Guest LisaY Posted May 5, 2000 Report Share Posted May 5, 2000 I'm having difficulty in keeping my heel forward on the working leg when in passe (retire?) (is it called 'passe' when the toes touch the outside of the support leg knee?). We do a barre exercise that of plie, sur le cou de pied, rising out of the plie to passe (or retire?), and as I raise the working leg, slightly tracing the inside of my supporting leg with the toes, my foot/heel rotates inward. One of my teachers is helping me to correct this by having me lie on my stomach, one leg straight as the 'support' leg and then raising the other to retire position while trying to keep my heel on that working leg in contact with the floor. It's an effort. Obviously a strength problem I need to work on. Does anyone else have any good exercises or suggestions? Quote Link to comment
