First Arabesque Photos

I think that Option #1 looks better (you look more relaxed, and not so tense. your leg and arm are also higher and the background looks cleaner). But, as you said, it was next to the barre, so they won't know your real pique.


You have a nice line in your arabesque!!!! you should wait for Mrs. Leigh to answer this one I think.....

Option #1, ballaurena. Your arabesque is good in both, but definitely less neck strain in #1. :)

If you have a really good à la seconde tendu or développé, fine. If not, I would suggest something in croisé devant, effacé devant, or écarté devant.


Do you think that a developpe would be better because it shows your extension?
