HELP!! I'm totally running out of ideas for ballet lifts! I already got the fish dive pretty well but I don't really like pressed lifts!! Any creative ideas of lifts I could do with a not very advanced partner?(written from a girls side... ;) )
Thank you for your ideas!!

How about a no handed fish? or the Tchaikovsky Pas de deux lift?

I think supported leaps and jumps are easiest to do with beginning level partners--since they are only supported they are less likely to make your audience go "oh, no". There's plenty of pas to learn without getting into big fancy lifts. I'd stick with supports for now.

I like the one where you sort of do a backbend over the guys shoulder in retire (he holds the straight leg) and then you extend your bent leg. it looks impressive but is relatively easy.
