Siegelife Posted April 3, 2005 Report Share Posted April 3, 2005 From all of the stuff I've been reading I've come to the possible conclusion that the problem with DD's current school is that somehow in the technique being taught there the dancers are not being shown how to use their core/adductor muscles instead of their thigh/outer muscles for developes, plie, battements etc. I've been told that this may be the reason for the upper level students having larger bottoms than other students I've seen elsewhere. I'm wondering if there is a way that I could explain this to DD since she won't be going to another school until after June. Hopefully, there she will learn the concept. Is there any language I could use to help her (and myself) understand this while she is practicing before she transfers? Or should I wait and leave it up to a new teacher for later on?
