  3. This is a fantastic video, thank you so much for making it! It really helped me feel where my alignment was wonky, and I just did 4 nice clean doubles in a row – for me, that’s kind of amazing 😀 I’m so thrilled. Thanks again xx

  4. Thank you so much for this! You really made the positioning clear and I’m looking forward to practicing. I’d also love to see a video like this on chaine turns or one on spotting. I get so dizzy when asked to do turns across the room! There must be something I’m doing wrong.

  5. Hello Katie!
    I was wondering if SAB would accept students above 18? I’m 16 this year and I really want to go to SAB. Its my dream to dance at NYC Ballet but in my country (Singapore) education is everything. I have to finish high school first but I would be 18 by then. Thank you for your help! And this video was very useful! (Got my first quadruple en pointe!)
