Xena Posted October 8, 2002 Report Share Posted October 8, 2002 OK, this may be difficult to answer, btu I would be eternally grateful if someone had the patience to help me out. I know its difficult to explain steps in writing. Pas de valse, turning. I get it fine on demi pointe, but when I try it en pointe, I have no idea which foot is en pointe, when its en pointe and when its not. My teacher has tried to show me, and I thought I got it, but I wasn't convinced. I've watched videos over and over again, but its just not slow enough to see exactly what they do, and the video on the ABT dictionary website is a little fast. Maybe I'm just making a big deal over this and if I stop thinking about it'll come, but if someone can give me a nudge in the right direction..that would be great I don't mind if you describe in counts, as that works just great and may be easier. e.g. So on what count am I up en pointe and on what counts am I not? and is it a roll up onto pointe or do I step up onto pointe and coming down is it a roll through or just straight back to flat?
