grand allegro issues

Recommended Posts

I like grand allegro because I think it's fun an I enjoy it, most of the time. But I just can't seem to do sodashaws (sorry about spelling) or grand jetes. I have both of my splits and an oversplit on my right, but I an never achieve anything even close to a split when I jump. What should I do to improve?

Maplebunny, you are still very young, and probably still growing, and have not developed the strength to jump high enough to execute a split in the air. It takes time and a lot of strength, not just the ability to do a split. You have to be able to get your whole body up into the air and moving forward! Patience, and of course a lot of work. But you can't expect to have it all at 13. :wink:
