savannah_ Posted April 27, 2013 Report Share Posted April 27, 2013 I've never been a fast turner and turns have never been my strong point. I'm fourteen now and I feel like I'm not progressing enough with my turns on pointe. I ALMOST have a clean double on pointe but I always freak myself out. I know I have it and that's the problem, I get scared and can feel myself coming around for the second time and my brain goes in panic mode! And my fouettes I consistently get 16 on flat but on pointe I can't get my rhythm and I feel like I cant releve up. I have banana feet and strength has always been a problem for me. So I'm not sure if it strength or my rhythm. I know that just getting in the studio and practicing over and over again is the best way to improve. And no one can give me exact advice because you haven't seen me dance in person. But if anyone knew of any exercises or advice that may help I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
