Mazenderan Posted February 10, 2008 Report Share Posted February 10, 2008 I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on how I could improve my grande jete? I didn't really have a sense of how bad it looked until I caught sight of myself in the mirror.....yeuch My front leg isn't at 90 degrees, my back leg is bent, and my torso seems to be leaning forward. I look like Wile E Coyote in mid-run. I can get my leg to well above 90 degrees in grande battement en arriere and en avant, so why is my extension in this jump so wretched? My preparation isn't right either, my teacher says I have a tendency to put my head down and literally 'run' at it. All in all, the whole thing looks rather comedic than otherwise. How do I begin to improve this? Quote Link to comment
