Chronus24 Posted July 19, 2008 Report Share Posted July 19, 2008 Surprised to find no previous topics addressing this, at least that I could uncover... Anyway, I have been working on attaining at least a decent execution of this, one of the less complex ballet tricks of today's dancer. I feel I have both adequate flexibility (front splits only an inch or two from floor) and strength (above 90 developpes), however putting them together for this jump has been a curious endeavor. I can't seem to get my legs into their full extension after the switch part, even though they have the flexibility. Does anyone have any advice on how they made this jump work for them? Mind you, I feel like I'm very close to getting it, so I think it's just something with my form or take off that I can't figure out otherwise. Any thoughts, or if I've been too vague, any further info I can provide? Quote Link to comment
