undertutu Posted September 15, 2006 Report Share Posted September 15, 2006 There are lots of "straight" and "legs" that come up in my search, but didn't see this topic... Oh my goodness!!!! I looked in the mirror today at myself in 5th position from the side and I couldn't believe what I saw! It wasn't good. I discovered that my legs are bent. In fact as I checked in with the mirror throughout class I discovered that it is rare that my legs are straight! I really have to concentrate on straightening them really hard and my hips go back when I try it. I am so disgusted. I pull up all the way up through my head and have been fixing my open ribs and back to far back for the past 5 years and am making progress. This feels like such a huge set back. I've been at this ballet as an adult starter for 13 years. Having such a fundamental problem is really getting me down. I feel like I have to put all my progress lately in the dumpster since my base technique has been off. ARGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! Quote Link to comment
