americanlostinUK Posted November 14, 2005 Report Share Posted November 14, 2005 hi, i haven't said anything in ages, lately i've been getting a bit discouraged with petit allegro. it just goes so fast and i often feel like i'm only attempting to dance and in reality i'm making spastic little movements in random directions. my biggest problem is getting off the floor. i have hyperextended legs and i've read that this can be a problem. it just really depresses me when i watch everyone else do a super-fast glissade pas-de-chat and i do a sort of step step throw both legs into the air. it probably isn't actually this bad but it really bothers me. i'm not the lightest person around, i don't actually think this has much to do with it because its not as if im super fat or anything, i'm just not a balanchine body-type. are there maybe exercises i could do to help with this?
