Guest dancerlover Posted December 14, 2005 Report Share Posted December 14, 2005 Does anyone know what would be a good way to start practising how to obtain a clean attitude derrier starting from 5th position like those prima ballerinas where their lines is clean and smooth and neat? I am able to do so with barre support but I realise following: 1) Thighs are weak without barre thus lift won't be as high 2) My shoulders sinks onto one side after full lift 3) My either side gets smashed up causing body to be imbalance Further questions: 1) As you are lifting your feet tracing lines from 5th up to knees do you engage weight totally(fullly) at this point to your supporting leg or later 2) How do you maintain a nice attitude leg up in air as I feel my feet sinking after teacher lets go of support 3) When do you gain full body/shoulder balance- is it when enggaing working leg out as your supporting leg supports or is it after all foot placement is done? Hope my email is not confusing Quote Link to comment
