Pirou Posted January 3, 2008 Report Share Posted January 3, 2008 Sorry to flood the board with questions, but, perhaps it's my inquiring mind with the new year... I went to a class where we did slow-motion petit battements in which the teacher demonstrated straightening the knee until the shin was perpendicular to the floor. She did this without moving her knee, and the toe was still an inch or so from the floor. When I do this, if I extend my leg, my toe hits the ground. I've tested it several different ways, and if I were to not move my knee and yet have my toe clear the ground when I unbend, I'd have to begin with my cou-de-pied substantially up my shin/calf - about halfway to the knee. What am I doing wrong? Quote Link to comment
