je danse dans ma tete Posted December 17, 2008 Report Share Posted December 17, 2008 I love beaten jumps, and am normally quite good at entrechats and anything 'battu'. Assemble battu however, scares me. We normally do glissade into assemble type combinations. I cannot remember the exact terminology for this assemble, so I will describe the step. Every now and then we do assemble where the back leg swishes a la seconde and then on alighting the same (back) leg beats behind then in front. I can do it at the barre no problem band it feels natural there, but in the center I can only do it without port de bras. I think it is part psychological as my other beaten steps are 'wonderful' in my teacher's words and assembles without the beats are great fun for me. I am scared to death that I will land wrong and hurt myself. But usually, when I personally am scared of a step it is not because it is new, but because I am not preparing properly... so I know this is vague, but during the prep is there anything I should really really focus on in order to execute the step with less fear? All suggestions/tips etc. are MOST welcome. Thank you! Quote Link to comment
