Double Tours in Passe


Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have any advice for double tours in passe? 

I can do double tours in 5th just fine. I just started learning doubles in passe and I keep getting thrown off. I cannot land them at all!

Any help would be much appreciated :)

balletgoober may I ask how you are trying to land them? Since you are learning this complex movement, have you asked your teacher for help?

Hi vrsfanatic, 

My teacher has given me some guidance, and it has helped marginally, but I also wanted to reach out on here. 

My teacher has me land them to the knee.

Have you tried a single in passé landing to the knee?

Yes, I have my singles down. I just can’t seem to get in the second rotation and land it.

Are you aiming your working thigh/knee sharply backwards around the circle and coordinating the arms. You will need more force with both the arms and the working leg.
