Lidewij Posted October 21, 2011 Report Share Posted October 21, 2011 I did a search but did not find an answer to my question. We do a very quick jeté combination at the barre. I can manage to the front and the back, but to the side... At first we did 8 jetés to the side in 1st position. After 2 weeks that became 5th position. (We have a set barre) When we did them in 1st, my toes would barely go off the floor, and the teacher kept telling me to go higher. I have no idea how to go higher with so little time. And now from 5th it is much worse, I can't close to a decent 5th just to keep up with the music, my toes still barely come off the floor. On the bright side, I do use my foot well to push off the floor. (which is the correction my other classmates get most) Do you have any tips for me to become faster in my jetés? (In fact, tendus as well, we just don't do them as quickly usually) Thanks! Quote Link to comment
