booklover234 Posted July 9, 2011 Report Share Posted July 9, 2011 I had the advanced male teacher in Ballet for the first time this week. (He teaches beginner classes, which I took even though it was below my level). The good: He demonstrated in more detail plie, releve, degaje (how to spell?), and tendu. The not so good, but sort of good: Apparently I sickle my leg in back tendu's, and in balances and jumps I lean to the left. Why did I never know this before? How to correct it? Also, I had a newish jazz teacher for all three of my jazz class. (below my level, my level, and above my level.) The one above my level had four people in it. There, when she could focus on me, she realized my core is pretty weak (totally true). She asked me not to turn until I could get it stronger and asked me to do it fast (she said it nicer than that sounds). How do I strengthen it quickly (I am already doing 100-200 situps a day). Are there other exercises? Quote Link to comment
