PSB Ballerina Posted October 20, 2011 Report Share Posted October 20, 2011 My thighs are very different from everyone else's in the class. When I stand in first position with proper form my thighs do not touch. There is a curve from the top of my leg to my knee kind of like an arc but not to that extreme on both legs. They do not touch when I do sou-sus or any steps relating to sou-sus such as bourree's. One of my dance teacher recognized this but didn't say why I had this. Another teacher thinks I'm being lazy and not straightening my legs and not working my inner thighs. However my kneecaps are pulled up and I straighten my legs to the best of my ability and work my inner thighs. Does anyone know why this happens and if it can be fixed? It looks weird when I'm dancing compared to the other dancers in my class and entrechats are near to impossible because I can't beat my inner thighs (as well as mot beat jumps). I want to become a professional but I'm afraid people would not like the look of my legs and jumps that require beats. Please help! Quote Link to comment
