~DaNcInQuEeN~ Posted March 3, 2005 Report Share Posted March 3, 2005 I have a few questions, for my pointe class today left me confused! We were doing one combination where we did a pique arabesque, fondue in arabesque and sprung en pointe doing a rond de jamb with the leg ending to a la seconde and immediatly pulling into passe position and piroetting. So it was sort of like a backwards fouette turn from arabesque. Well, anyways it was very difficult for me to do! Once I had mastered the half rond de jamb from arabesque to a la seconde en pointe, I couldn't turn! I ended up throwing my shoulders about and looking rather foolish in an attempt to turn. Where do I get the momentum (sp) ? I don't understand because I can't push using a plie... Also, during my technique class, at barre, we did develope devant and did a cambre back, still holding the leg devant. I can do it while holding my leg with my arms or resting it on the barre, but I cant seem to get my back to bend when I'm not! Is it a strength thing? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
