I can't seem to get my tour jete or grand jete!

Every time I try to perform them they look more like a V rather than a straight clean line. I have my splits and I have height in the jump but they won't go straight.

How can I have perfect leaps?

If you have the flexibility to do a split, then it sounds like you don't have or don't know how to use the strength to hold them there. The most bendy body in the world won't make a lick of difference if your muscles can't lift your legs and hold them at the angle they need to be. When you're standing, can you hold your leg 90* off the floor in the front and back?

Yes, I can. I wouldn't be able to hold my arabesque if I didn't.
