balletbaby183 Posted March 26, 2006 Report Share Posted March 26, 2006 hi, I have a bit of a problem. My arches are horrible, which gives me problems on pointe. I have been on pointe for over two years now and I can barely do a piroette(sorry i can't really spell) because i can't get over my box! secondly, my recital is in two months. I was cast as Belle (we're doing Beauty and the Beast), and my dance teacher would like me to do my part on pointe. Yikes! I've tried therabands and doing lots of tendus and stuff, but none of it seems to work. I've done some stretches, like pointing your foot, having someone hold it down, resisting for a few seconds then relaxing for a few seconds, and stuff like that, but then I usually end up over stretching and making it worse! Is there anything I can do to improve my arches by the recital? Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. Quote Link to comment
