Trying_to_improve Posted January 10, 2006 Report Share Posted January 10, 2006 If you follow the link below (hope it's Ok to link to the English National Ballet) it will show you 4 photos In the 2 photos the furthest to the right the dancers are in arabesque derriere. My question is about their feet. It looks to me that the working foot is overly tilted (winged?) is it an illusion: and is it correct technique or not? If I try to have such an angle on my foot I'm definatly not pointing it evenly. I seem to see this farily regularly in photos/ This also links to the post on one of the 17-22 board where a girl asked about winging her feet in arabesque derriere called wingin and turnout, but I didn't want to post on there. http://www.ballet.org.uk/whats_on.htm Grateful for any thoughts Quote Link to comment
