Tinybucket Posted January 19, 2012 Report Share Posted January 19, 2012 Hello, I have a big depth problem when I plié: my left leg is fine, but my right ankle (back of the foot, possibly achilles tendon as well) just feels jammed, and therefore restricts the depth of my plié. This is apparent in all the positions I do this in (first, second, third and feet parallel). The difference in depth is quite a lot, 10-15 cm. I don't experience problems in day to day life but only in ballet. I remembered when I started class I had a lot of ankle cracking in the right foot, that sometimes felt freeing, I don't experience that as much anymore, if at all. My question is whether I should ask a doctor about, and how I should deal with it best in class. I'm a bit worried that my left leg won't get as good a stretch. Shortly about me: I started as an adult beginner (22 years of age) back in September once a week Vaganova style classes, and recently took up another class that is more dancy (quite a few combinations and more advanced steps than in the other class) and less focused on technique. Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment
