dancing in pointe shoes is a very precise technique – if you want to avoid common injuries such as ankle sprains and knee sprains. A young dancer, a beginner’s adult ballet, can take two or three years of classes and be constantly sickling or bending the ankle inward toward the center of the body, or “fishing”, or bend the ankle from the center of the body outward. In a work, or the presentation of the leg, where there is no weight on the foot, it doesn’t matter. But, in a support leg, the leg that carries the weight of the body, certainly matter – especially if you want to dance in pointe shoes.
maintain the ankle aligned, meaning sickling nor curves, or curved out, is ideal. But dancers with bend less arc want to sickle out or “fishing” the curve of the ankle, a job, or lift the leg, to show a beautiful curve of the foot showing a very flexible ankle joint. This will not result in injury of ballet, the foot or knee.
which allows the ankle for inside or out, the sickle in a support leg, however, eventually affect the condition of the Arch of the foot muscles, as well as the ligaments of the joints of the knee for support.
as a properly trained dance student can opt for “fish” or sickle towards leg work out a foot, an extension to devant or an Arabesque, to create aesthetic ballet ballet teachers, choreographers and artistic directors search. This is well in a position ballet leg that occurs.
more audience, members going to the ballet are not looking for this type of details, please believe me. Please.
in a support foot, either shoes or demi-pointe, the ankle must be aligned, i.e., in a position a straight down from the joint, to protect the tendons and ligaments that keep the structure of the upper leg, articulation of knee and leg, safely intact.
