LilBalletDancer1993 Posted April 14, 2008 Report Share Posted April 14, 2008 Heey I've been en pointe for about 3 years now, and it's all going well, except for courus !! I know they're a basic step (they're one of the first things I learnt!!), and I've moved on to more advanced work now obviously... but I just don't feel happy doing them.... I mean, I can "do" them (notice the marks each side!!), but I just don't feel like I'm doing them WELL .... When I do them, I either feel like I'm doing them softly but in slow motion, or up to speed and a bit... heavily? Basically they feel a bit clumpy at times!! I've been watching lots of videos of professional dancers doing them, and their feet seem to never stop moving, but their hips are staying totally level, and their foot work is soft and light- the movement seems to "roll" through their feet (sorry if that makes no sense!! ).... When I do them, I can feel my hips moving with my legs at times (not good!! ), and my feet just feel stiff and heavy.... Does anyone have any advice/help/tips for how I can improve them?? They're something I feel like I should not just be able to "do", but do well by now... Heeeelp!! LBDxXx Quote Link to comment
