KikiM Posted October 17, 2011 Report Share Posted October 17, 2011 In a large very beginner class yesterday, the instructor (who was wearing sweatpants, so I couldn't see clearly what he was doing), led us across the floor doing some type of move where (for lack of my knowledge in the correct terminology) he hopped on one foot with the other leg up in the air, then alternated legs. I couldn't see whether his forward leg was straight or bent-- he explained it was in "attitude", which of course, did not mean much to me as a beginner, but it was not appropriate to hold up the class for further explanation. I tried what I thought he was doing, with my leg up and bent, turned out, but I saw my reflection and I looked ridiculous, so clearly I was not doing it correctly. Can anyone explain to me (if you can interpret my terrible description) what this move is supposed to look like? I wasn't clear the exact position of the forward leg in "attitude"-- what height should this leg be at (the highest you can get it, or is there a certain height?) Also, should the leg be all at the same level, or is the knee to toe pointing downward? Is your body straight or leaning slightly back? I have a hard time copying the instructor when everything moves quickly and I can't see that well (because of his sweatpants and the number of people in class). Thank you! Quote Link to comment
