How To Get Your Legs High In Extensions!

Hi Lisa! Something that has frustrated me for years in dance is leg extensions. With the right momentum, I can kick my leg up just as high as anyone in my class. But when it comes to slowly bringing the leg up slowly through developpe to tilts and things like that, I can never seem to get my leg up past a little over 90 degrees. Is this a problem of leg strength or am I just not flexible enough? Please help me I have been struggling with this for years and I don’t know what to do. Thank you for your time. :) Nikki
