Hi, I hope this doesn't sound too silly, but I have very very very straight legs (they are not bent looking, but they're not hyperextended!) I guess in some ways it is a blessing because my hyperextended friends have lots of trouble with getting on their legs and their stability etc. However the line is not as nice, and I have been told by a couple of teachers that I should perhaps stretch for more hyperextension to get the lovely curve (for example in the supporting leg for arabesque!) Does anybody have any advice for this for safe ways to get this? And also looking for exercises for winged feet! I do theraband work to strengthen the 'wing' (where the top of foot sort of goes out from the ankle like the principals do!) and I luckily don't sickle thanks to working a lot on it, but just wondering if this is an expected in ballet and other exercises that I could safely do! Very sorry for how long this is! And if I am not making sense haha (In the midst of GCSEs!)
