While performing, your body must be stretched to a maximum in order to achieve the highest result possible and sometimes even... impossible. This especially relates to leaps, jumps, rotations and pirouettes.
Proper plie is extremely important in every take off and landing to execute an accurate jump. Not using enough plie or incorrect position can cause injury.
A hard-working dancer will achieve better results than a gifted one who does not put all the efforts into the training.
If you can emotionally engage the audience in your performance - you are a king / queen of the stage.
To achieve perfect pirouettes you must:
1. perform a perfectly balanced releve on high demi-points,
2. align your body axis firmly perpendicular to the floor,
3. pull up at each rotation of your pirouette,
4. be able to coordinate all parts of your body to accelerate/reduce the speed of rotations.
Pointe technique basics:
Your muscles and foot structure must be ready before you put the pointe shoes on.
You must feel a stable line/axis from the tip of your toe to your head with a very strong back.
