Your strengths and weaknesses, even as a pro or pre-pro?

Hello, everyone! I've just been wondering about others out there; I know that no dancer is "perfect" (except perhaps Svetlana Zakharova). What are you best at--say, naturally talented--and what is still not your favorite thing to do, even though you've come this far?

For me, I'm great at extension and grand allegro, but put me in a pirouette combination and it's bad news bears.

Come on. I know we don't normally talk about our weaknesses, but I think we should. I shared mine; what are yours? :)

Well I'm weak as anything now I don't dance that much comparatively anymore.

But I was always a grand allegro girl through and through.

And my adage and pointework (like aesthetics of feet and footwork) were always shonky :P

I'm good at barre.. haha.
Not so good in the centre.. Except jumps I guess, I'm good at all kinds of jumps.
