ps: Did you enter the No Tricks - Just Treats Giveaway? If not, scroll down or click here to enter.

I don't know about you, but I have been struggling a lot with changement jumps. If you don't know what changement are yet, click here and look up changement.

I have something I call CDPD. I know, the name isn't that attractive, but it sure helps you with your changement here's how it goes:

C heck Position. No thirds, demi-fourths, or sixths positions.

D eep Plie. Note: "Deep" does not mean grande plie. It means to go down into the deepest demi-plie you can. Really feel those tendons stretching.

P oint Your Toes! As hard as you can! This will give you height, and gracefulness in your changement.

D eep Plie. Land with one of those deep plies I mentioned above.

Note: This system can be used with almost any jump, faille, assemble, entrechat, etc.

I hope you liked Tuesday's Tips! Now, go practice those changement!
