Dancin Babe first let me welcome you to the board - it's great to have you join us.<P>Pain is not a good indicator - pain is a signal to stop. And, generally speaking, clicks can be a sign of trouble too. Not always, but sometimes. But pain is certainly a sign of trouble.<P>Perhaps you are going down too far in your plié in second. Make sure before you do grand plié in second that you do several in a demi plié in second - and see if that helps. In other words warm up the hip first before you do a grand plié in second. <P> And I would recommend that you don't do any grand plié in any position except second - which would also help both your hips and your knees.<P>You might also try standing in retiré and slowly swing your lifted leg in and out several times. That is also a good way to warm up. Another way is to do battement en cloche - gently - not very high or fast as a hip warmup.<P>Are you doing your middle splits only when you are thoroughly warmed up? You should never do them unless you are completely warmed up - like after the barre - or even after the entire class. <P>Perhaps you are pressing down too much in those middle splits. You might want to ease up. And you should mention this to your teacher and see what she says.<P>I hope this helps. Let me know.<p>[This message has been edited by Basheva (edited June 02, 2001).]
