Good, But Tell Her To Have Her Knees Up & Facing The Ceiling, She Is Rolling In & It's Bad For Your Knees.

yeah she is flexible but she is totally TURNED IN!! not good not good. must turn the toes and knees up up up straight to the ceiling. andI think she ought to sit up straighter--tell her to push her back backwards--for a while she will feel like she is gonna fall over, but it is important to have the hip flexors strong enough to support the back straight and the legs UP! that is very important. waht kind of dancing does she do?
show us pics of her working on her side splits. once she gets those with her hips facing ONE DIRECTION, get her to start on OVERSPLITS! those are the best for flexibility!!
but wow, thats a great split and what a pretty girl!

Have her face a wall in her straddle splits with her knees facing up and her feet against the wall. Push from behind until she is in the straddle splits against the wall, or as far as she can go.

it's just b/c little kids haven't developed the muscles in their legs to hold turn out.... so don't force it too early, have her do some exercises to help her hold it.... or let it develop over time....

yes shes flexable, but please please pleaseeee tell her to turn her legs out! that it so bad for her knees! all my students in my beginner ballet and beginner jazz classes (they're all gymnasts) all turn in like that! omg- its painful for me to watch. otherwise, her flexability looks good

Very nice, but shes turned it!!! Keep your knees facing up. The way she has her legs cant possibly be good for her!

Pretty good. BUT big BUT she has her knees turned in and thats horrible. it's ugly and not good for your body. She needs to work on being turned out. My little sister is 10 and she has her toes to the floor with her legs turned out. Same here. Think TURNED OUT and pinky toes on the GROUND! ttyl
