I used to study vaganova where we did our frappes with a pointed foot in the coupe. I recently switched to an RAD studio, where we do them with a flexed foot. The change keeps throwing me off! I can't brush the floor and my foot is always sickled in the end position! Any thought?

This answer is getting a good workout today! If you know that you're doing something wrong, you have to consciously think and take action on doing it right.

Slow the frappés down when you practice them and concentrate on doing them correctly all through the movement. Then you can speed up when the fix has worked.

Just try your best and keep working at it. The same thing happend to me and it took me a while to finally get it. Don't worry you will eventually.


Keep Working Hard and Don't Give Up :shrug:

I've studied ballet for ten years and at my studio we have always done frappes flexed. I would really like to learn how to do these with a pointed foot because I know teachers teach different ways and it's good to be versatile. Can you give some pointers? Haha, I'm funny!
