Today was a difficult session. The barre work started off well, but I always find doing pliés in 4th position is very difficult for me, this is something I need to work on. I think it’s hard for me because my hips move a lot and I can’t quite get them straight, I also have a tight Achilles in this position I also need to move my balance into the middle more because I lean too much on my back leg and so my pliés aren’t correct. I also need to remember to pull up more doing any plié, this is because I sometimes relax my posture in ballet and so it effects my performance when I’m trying to do or lean a new technique. I tried Echappé sauté for the first time and I found that it was hard at first but I have gotten the hang of it.
