Guest Hattie Posted November 3, 2005 Report Share Posted November 3, 2005 I've never been great at pirouettes, but when I was younger I could do very nice singles, fairly nice doubles and pretty awful triples. Now I'm the grand old age of 21 and have taken a few years off, I'm finding them impossible. Having been to the doctor yesterday about dizziness and fainting, I was told I have very low blood pressure, and that my blood likes to pool in my legs (maybe THAT's why they look so chunky!). I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem, and how do you counteract it. I have been working on my spotting, and I can feel that it's okay, but I am still dizzy after any turn. If it's a pirouette ending in a nice plie with nothing after, then it's fine, but if there is another step straight away then I feel like I will fall over. I've tried deepening the plie to get more grounding, but I do think it's all in my head. Does anyone have any advice? Will I never be able to do good pirouettes? Thanks xx Quote Link to comment
