chronically bent knees

Hi everyone,

This may be a dumb question. but I know a lot of you probably have some training in kinesiology or something similar.

I'm wondering about the kids with chronically bent knees.... the ones that can't seem to pull them up. Is there a physical limitation here that is preventing them from fully straightening their leg? (i.e. tightness in the lower back or something?)

I feel like I'm telling kids to pull up their leg and they can't (or at least it doesn't appear straight.) And these are kids that do take ballet so they are training correctly. Is there a better way to give this correction?

I've been feeling frustrated lately with how to reach the kids that can't seem to apply corrections.

Thanks :)
