i want a better arabesque!

Anne here again! Brianna just moved so her internet isn't fully set up yet, so I'm doing most of the blogging:] Anyway, whenever I watch So You Think You Can Dance, I marvel at the girls' and boys' arabesques. Seriously, I make a comment about them every episode. By watching SYTYCD and going online to look up dancers my age or younger, I have decided that I will have a beautiful arabesque! I WILL I WILL I WILL!!!!

I've looked up great stretches on http://www.dance.net/ and the amazing Yahoo! Answers:] Some of the stretches I thought were interesting were placing your leg onto something within your flexibility range (chair, stair....bear, etc.) and then lifting the leg above it for a few seconds then back down to rest. Another one was doing back bridges and trying to walk your hands to your feet (say whattt!?) But hey its worth a shot!

Here are my arabesques before! I'll take more pictures a month from now to see if there are any improvements!

(Right. i love how my cat is creepin)

Pretty soon, I'll have amazing arabesques like Billy Bell, Ashley, and...this girl.



Oh and here's a video with more stretches that I will be using. Check out BalletBrunette92's other video of her arabesque....mannnn this HAS to work!


Hugs, Kisses, and Strong Backs!

  2. I think the walking in a bride with your hands to your feet is to get a more flexible back so you cna hold your body upright. Good luck! :)
