What stretches do you recommend specifically for strength relating to adagio and holding your leg above 90? I have the flexibility when stretching and I can hold it after if I'm stretching pied a la main and let go, but when developpeing and especially when I'm doing releve a la seconde, I can't seem to hold it past either 90 or 100

I practice developpee ecarte (devant and derrière) everyday between barre and center, making sure to do a true ecarte position (very pulled up on the working side with the shoulder blade on the supporting side very much pulled down) and it’s helped my extension a lot. I recommend you try it but you have to do it everyday and hold it for a few seconds

So I watched Sarah Lamb take barre today AND SHE IS PERFECT

nooooooooo

the way she’s holding her leg with her arm like that is borderline demonic contortion status omg 100% I would dislocate my shoulder if I did that

oh sarah

This one is my MOST favorite résumé photo because I had this little magnet of Gillian Murphy doing a penche when I was like 14 and I just wanted to cry because I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do that, so this picture means something to me because I proved my little 14 year old self wrong
