How to get good alignment

This post send by Lindsey

Hi I’ve been doing ballet for a few years now. I am going to a more strict studio and my other studio didnt really talk much about alignment so I need to get that quickly . Any tips on how to get good alignment fast? I really want to go on pointe so this would be really helpful, thanks

    Lots of looking in the mirror and practicing your alignment in different positions. Remember everything solid and straight as possible except arms really.

    On the contrary, arms DEFENITLY should be solid and straight. A lot if the students have limpy arms in my ballet class and it honestly looks awful. Remember to always focus on the little details, such as arms, head, knees, etc.

    Yes sorry I should have been more specific. I was meaning more in that arms should look like they’re not rigid but yes they definitely need to be held strongly if that makes sense. Sorry about that.

    No, it’s ok, I see what you mean 🙂 I’m just really paranoid when it comes to arms. Haha
