Xena Posted October 4, 2002 Report Share Posted October 4, 2002 I am really finding Fouetté rond de jambe en tournant that we do at the barre difficult at the moment. I swear I never used to have any problems with them. But recently for some reason I find them awkward to do. The problem is that I seem to not let go of the barre in time, so I feel like I am pushing/pulling with my arm, rather than using my upper body and leg to turn me around. I read somewhere that as soon as you relevé to turn you simultaneously let go of the barre and just sail around. I have been tyring this believe me, but its just not happeneing. They used to be one of my favourite exercises, now i dread them. This is not happening at all, and I feel stupid doing them. In the center, they are fine once I start with a pirouette, then go into a series of them. Also, if I just do the exercise we do at the barre, without the barre. I can do them. So I am dumbstruck why doing just one simple turn at the barre is beyond me? (By the way this is in demi not en pointe.) Thanks Jeanette Quote Link to comment
