Guest balletchick7025 Posted January 26, 2005 Report Share Posted January 26, 2005 after an extremely frustrating pointe class today, i decided that it was time to ask for help. doing adagio in the center is definitely not my strong area, but i can do it pretty decently in soft shoes. however, whenever i try to do it in pointe shoes, i can't get my leg up as high, i'm not as turned out (in either leg) and i almost always end up falling out of my arabesques, a la secondes, etc because my supporting foot isn't stable. i have flat feet (but am doing exercises to pull up my arch) so that doesn't help with stability either). is that a universal problem that everyone has to deal with or am i doing something wrong? i'm worried that it makes me look like a total amatuer when i actually am not that bad! any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
