I have recently started at a new school and in the past few weeks three different ballet teachers have told me that I have very soft muscles. All said that they are exceptionally beautiful to watch, but that I will have to work very hard to control them. One also added, that by the time she's through with me, 'you will have legs like Sylvie Guillem!'.
Heheh... I wish!! This has confused me slightly. Has having soft muscles got something to do with flexibilty? (I am quite flexible and have very hyperextended knees) How do I have to work to learn to control them?
Any comments on the matter would be much appreciated!
Also, I would take the opportunity to thank all the knowledgeable people who contribute to this forum. It has helped me so much, and is a delight to read.
