Mad Monday Prep Turnout

Mad Monday Prep Turnout

Sometimes the problem with pirouettes, or any turn, is a lack of turnout before the take-off.  Dancers forget to think about fully engaging their turnout before and during the preparatory plié.

Also, the lovely, spiraling action of the legs rotating in the hip sockets help ensure a solid position for the turn itself, plus providing a more effective push to propel the turn.

The next time you are working on perfecting your turns, concentrate on the Prep Turnout – engaged even before the plié itself.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14i:
“Remember to engage the prep-turnout.”
