Guest Raedyn L. Posted April 1, 2006 Report Share Posted April 1, 2006 See, I have this odd little... ISSUE with my legs. I discovered this when I tried to place my feet in parallel position. The parallel part was quite easy... but when I try to touch my feet together my knees get in the way! And upon closer observation, I found my legs bend slightly outwards at the knees. So now, I'm bowlegged. I've got an average amount of turnout for a beginner, and my knees get in the way when I try to make my heels touch in first position. (Ach!) If I really, REALLY try, though, and get several degrees more turnout--don't worry, I've heard "don't force it from your knees" a gazillion times and I listen very well--the knee situation is bypassed completely and I have no problem in first position. But since it doesn't take long for my legs to tire, I'm usually unable to keep my extra turnout for more than a few seconds. So until my turnout improves, should I worry about this or should I just tell my teacher? Quote Link to comment
