ceecee Posted October 23, 2011 Report Share Posted October 23, 2011 Dd receives conflicting advice from two of her teachers regarding turnout. She is very flexible and has flat straddles (knees up), frogs & butterflies. Always has had those. She struggles to please her "old school" teacher who asks that her heel not be visible in the mirror above her foot in tendue to the back or below her foot in tendue front. She asked another of her teachers about this who said that nobody is able to achieve that without perfect rotation. This teacher had her lie on her back, knees bent and allowed her knees to drop to the side to measure her rotation which he said was less than perfect. The "old school" teacher has always maintained that because she can easily do the straddles, frogs & butterflies, her rotation IS perfect & she should be able to achieve this turn out in tendue. By the way... DD says that her turnout is always much better when her leg is in the air than on the ground. ie. she is able to achieve the heel on top/bottom in developpe, just not tendue. Can anyone offer advice? Quote Link to comment
