Arabesque photo for dancer not en pointe


Recommended Posts

My younger DD is 11 and not on pointe yet. I want to take her to a couple of auditions this January to give her the experience. She will be on pointe when the SI happens. Should she submit a photo in arabesque on releve or on flat? I took pictures both ways but don't know which one would be the best to submit.

Select the photo where she has the best arabesque line that she can do at this time. It does nto matter whether it is relevé or not.

You're welcome. Definitely do not use a photo with any sickle! :(

Don't forget to check the Summer Intensive General Discussion forum for many relevant and pertinent topics. That forum is arranged alphabetically, so take a look, for instance, under 'Audition' and you'll find many threads that discuss various components of the audition experience, including photos.


Just browsing through the Forum periodically can uncover a wealth of information from the vast experiences of our membership over the years. :(

Well I am not a dancer, and I am not used to seeing arabesque on releve! So I just don't know! She was trying to get a really high releve!
