Guest balletchick7025 Posted January 12, 2005 Report Share Posted January 12, 2005 First I have to admit that I'm not the world's best turner. On good days I do doubles on pointe from fourth. But my problem lately has been with pirouettes from fifth. I can releve and hold it for at least "two pirouettes worth" but I can't even seem to do clean consecutive singles. After the first one, I feel like i start to hop up on pointe, put my feet down at different times, and lose my center. My arms definitely are doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what's killing my momentum. When I try to do doubles, I feel like I'm going up, but I just don't have enough momentum to get around a second time. Basically, are there any tips that you can give me to help this frustrating problem that's really holding me back? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
