Pirou Posted January 17, 2008 Report Share Posted January 17, 2008 After almost one year of study, I am finally starting to be able to do our frappé combinations a little bit. One thing in particular I have trouble is this: after the regular frappés, we do this thing where we come up on relevé, prepare a double as if for the side, and then when we go plié down and point the working foot, we either (a) angle our body toward the bar, with our arm in arabesque and the working foot in tendu to the back, or ( angle our body away from the bar, with our arm in a kind of second and the working foot tendu to the front (at that angle away from the bar and a slight bend forward.) What are the names of these two positions/movements, and how do I know which one is coming up from what we've just done? Now that I am finally almost fast enough to get to them, I always seem to be going front when the rest of the class is going back and vice versa. Quote Link to comment
