Hi, I’m a dancer and I’ve been working on getting my front aerial on the ground... my back is very flexible and can arch a lot but for some reason when I attempt my front aerial my back doesn’t arch and my hips close which makes no sense cause I’m very flexible and I have a solid front handspring step out and front walkover! Any tips for arching more/ bringing your hips up more in your front aerial? Thanks!

It would be difficult to give advice without seeing it. Likely it has something to do with how you are taking off.
