Dem hyperextensions. 

Idk, it’s very athletic, I suppose, but I can’t help myself - I don’t think it’s beautiful. Straight leg would have looked nicer. But that’s just me.

russianpointegirl I totally get what you mean, hyperextension is great and everything since it’s nice in ballet but sometimes dancers look better without it

^ That’s so interesting! I’ve always thought hyperextension was gorgeous

Haha I just noticed this! Well, what I’m saying is hyperextension does create nice lines of course! But sometimes people have crooked? Hyper extension or I feel like it distorts their lines? Some dancers don’t have hyperextension but their lines are incredible and same goes for feet! Masha Shirinkina doesn’t have high arches but I feel her lines look good like that. Because of the way se uses her feet. Idk sorry I’ll stop
