wannabe_LDN...I was just looking at your post about six vole. I am not trained in RAD syllabus (though several of my teachers were) so I don't know exactly which vole you do; there are different ways to execute brise or six vole (for example in some methods the working leg ends in sur le coup-de-pied devant or derriere and is done like a jete or sometimes it is done with the working leg ending straight front and back...sometimes the working leg brushes through first or sometimes whips around)...just depends on the school and teacher. But, what I have found helpful in executing them myself (I personally liked the bent knee finish front and back; just better for me) is to really feel the arc of the body going forward and backward in the air as you are executing the step. It is a sort of "flying" feeling...if you really bend at the peak of the jump you almost feel suspended in the air for a split second before you return to earth. Sorry for the long post and hope this makes some kind of sense! A picture is worth a thousand words!

Thanks...I'm pretty sure that's Evelyn Cisneros, former principal with SFB, doing those fouettes!

This is positively Evelyn Cisneros doing the fouettes.

Thankyou GN, I have yet to try out your suggestions as I sprained my ankle whilst on pointe in a pas de deux class at school, (my partner when placing me back en pointe after a lift in arabesque lost his balance and I fell sideways onto my pointed foot! hehe, us novice pas de deux students are quite accident prone!Should be fine when the term starts after the christmas holidays, and yes, I am still speaking to him!!! :)
