A cantankerous old lady with rheumatism takes up classical ballet at age thirty.
I, also, find that one of the easier positions to balance in. But my balance comes and goes -- some days are better than others.
I've noticed that if I have a nasty arthritic pain in one foot I can balance on it really well for some reason. This is not a recommendation for getting arthritis in your feet :P
I'm glad you clarified that, cuz otherwise I was totally going to hope for arthritic feet! It doesn't seem fair that none of my aches and pains seems to help me dance.Seriously, though, I had one of those moments this evening. Attitude derrière on demi-pointe, arm high in fifth, and I suddenly felt balanced. I let go of the barre entirely and just balanced there. It was the last position in the exercise, and I held it until the music stopped, then stretched to an arabesque and came down in a controlled plié. I was kinda in shock, and the instructor gave me a compliment. Maybe someday this won't be a remarkable event...
