BarreTalk Posted January 18, 2005 Report Share Posted January 18, 2005 In class this week the girls were learning linked fouette pirouettes. As the resident male, I worked on pirouettes a la seconde. Can anyone help me break this down? My teacher started me working at the barre, holding my right leg in a steady position, while hopping the other leg between flat (plie') and releve'. She said its important to move the heel of the standing leg forward each time it lands (which actually moves all of you forward). In the center I was thrilled to be able to do any of these and was able to get 1/4 turn around on each hop. However, I understand the goal is one revolution per hop, so was wondering how to increase the rotation. Also, what do you do with your arms while all this is going on? Quote Link to comment
