Tarthulhu Posted September 26, 2011 Report Share Posted September 26, 2011 Couple questions - 1. I'm struggling with rolling through my foot on saute arabesque - it ends up more of a brush than a roll followed by a jump up. My ankle's not stretching fully/fast enough, and part of that may be insufficient foot strength to get enough elevation to have the time to stretch because during quick tendus my ankles do stretch fully. Any suggestions on exercises? Lots of one-footed releves, probably, and....? 2. My Nutcracker part includes a drop to one knee from a series of chasses. Lovely large bruise after the first rehearsal - is that just the way it's going to be, or is there something I should be doing to minimize the impact? Advice appreciated Quote Link to comment
