Feet getting lazy

Dancing on my toes

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that sometimes if we are asked to do a combination immediately again en pointe that when I am up en pointe I get tired and don't pointe my feet to their full potential. This mostly happens in sous-sus and echapes if they are repeated many times. Is this just me being lazy of what? :D

It's not being lazy if you just don't have the strength to do that much. Perhaps the exercises are a bit too much at once for your strength right now. Or, the teacher is more likely trying to build your strength. :D If you are trying your best and working as hard as you can, then that is not being lazy.

I also don't have very high arches or insteps or flexible ankles, could this also be a reason why when I get tired I don't pointe my feet all the way?
