That she is doing positions as shown after just 2 weeks of training shows that she has excellent prospects.

hiya

no that is not rude that are beginner boots

we do show freestyle, musical, jazz,street and Garde (garde= sort of ritmic acrobatics) these are called garde boots.
because of the special dancemoves you where these boots
to protect your enkels.

Both girls will get there new boots within 2 weeks
then they will get Jazzboots with splitsole
then they can flex theur feet completly and still
have something around there enkel witch protects

But these boots also called "GardeBoots"
they al use when they start doing this kind of dancing
these pic where rtaking after there soloclass Gardedance
so thats why they still have their boots on..

hope you understand.

lots of love marcia

How do you make the girls you train improve so quickly?

The comment by Chapter17 is "How do you make the girls you train improve so quickly?" and I will answer that one from experience:

There are two elements here, and the first one has very little to do with the trainer. When a top girl comes along to a trainer she will be enthuseastic, will listen attentively, and will try really hard to improve. She will want to achieve so will allocate homework stretching time to get improvement.

On the other hand, the trainer will give her the right exercises for her ability and will take an interest in her progress, and that interest will not simply be for the time of the stretching class; the trainer/teacher will be much more interested than that!

In summary, the trainer does not make the girl improve; the trainer facilitates the trainees ability to improve!

An old saying was that "you can take a horse to water but cannot make it drink" is so applicable here.

As a trainer, I can help a person achieve, but what that achievement is is just what the trainee wants to achieve!

So, "how do they improve so quickly?" - by their own wanting to improve, and the trainer/teacher ensuring that they have appropriate exercises to do as "homework!"

The final photo on the roght is an excellent position but the heavy looking shoes detract; better to have bare feet that allow the top foot to be nicely pointed.

Also, grasp the up leg at the knee with the opposite hand and the leg will be able to be straightened.

She has beautiful flexibility that is better than some of my contortion trainees!

My congratulations to her.

Years ago when I was learning to be a trainer of contortionists I thought that I had seen it all and that one contortionist I saw performing had to be the best ever and that it would not be possible for anyone to get more bendy. I was quick, decisive - and wrong; and now realise that sooner or later I will see a more bendy person than the previous best.

mish_gymnast posts in this string "im bendyer than you!" and I have no doubt that she does not make this statement lightly.

I have seen many photos posted on DDN that show excellent flexibility and have no doubt that there are many members with extreme flexibility and that is great to see.

demi started dancing and training her flexibility for ess then a half year think this improvement shows that she would be able to imrpove more if she keepup the good.. Maybe you could give advice next time to help others instead of just telling your better.. Think people can help eachother. thank for your pictures i ques demi en demi will try to copy lots of that stuff bij keep up the training they have done so far

Wish you luck and hope you will think again while posting

greatz marcia
