ami1436 Posted November 2, 2005 Report Share Posted November 2, 2005 Last night we were working on hops en pointe, which I love and usually find really easy. One of the exercises we did had four hops turning (attitude derriere), then changing feet to attitude devant and four more hops turning. I can do the turn nicely and at a decent speed (like Kitri's variation), but these were fast, and we were doing several turns in a row ( four sets of the full two turns, so 8 turns in theory). Ideally, each four hops we did one turn, but at the speed I could only manage about 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn while maintaining line and control. I asked for tips to get the full turn in and was told to 'turn faster'! Think I'd probably lose control if I just tried to do that... any suggestions? Quote Link to comment
