Welcome, jlevine :yes:


Learning to use your demi plié really well and developing the correct use of the feet, the strength in the feet and calf muscles, and understanding the concept of elevation and rebound are all very important to jumping. Your teacher tells you to jump higher, fine, but, you should also be told and shown HOW to do that, or at least have it explained where your weakness is and why you have difficulty jumping higher. I would ask this teacher, if I were you. :lol:
