Kate B Posted September 11, 2002 Report Share Posted September 11, 2002 Hello! Last night in class we did pirouettes en dedans from fourth. The thing was, it was fourth position with the front leg bent and the back one stretched; I mean the preparation was the same as it usually is for pirouettes en dehors. I am used to doing en dedans from fourth only in a combination, and then I have enough momentum to get round! I found it so hard to releve with a straight back leg from a static position - en dehors this is OK because you can use your leg to get round. Basically, has anyone got any tips for this en dedans? I'd like to be able to do it. I found it slightly easier if I kept my fourth position short but it was nearly impossible not to bend my back leg when I went into releve. Quote Link to comment
