Prepare in a wide fourth-position plié.

 

Battement your leg forward toward your face—keeping it perfectly straight, with your foot pointed—and grab your ankle and lower calf with both hands as you begin your inside turn in forced arch.

Zoey says: “Really hold your core as you pull your leg toward you and

push into the ground with your standing leg for opposition.”
