Balletlove Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 I am doing Cecchetti advanced I and am really battling with the additional frappes exercise at the barre The exercise is... two frappes in each position en croix (with normal flexed foot) rise to 3/4 one double frappe in each position en croix (with a Vaganova or pointed foot) repeated twice and then reverse the whole exercise. the funny is coming with the double's.. double front is fine double side is fine double back is fine but on the double to the side... my teacher sees it as if I am doing an extra beat (but badly it looks more like a twitch before the double) I feel it as an involuntary twitch? spasm? even when doing it very slowly and concentrating very hard on trying to make sure that it does not twitch it still does it every time... any suggestions as to what could be happening and or how to stop/correct this. Thank you Quote Link to comment
