  10. Anonymous said: Any tips on pirouettes?

    textbooksandtendus:

    Technical tips from head to toe:

    • Spotting is really important! Make sure your neck isn’t too tense- I read somewhere that smiling while you turn relieves tension in your face and neck
    • Shoulders down and back (not too far) so you can stay upright
    • Keep your arms calm but strong— if you fling them your turns will get worse
    • Abs ENGAGED SO HARD make sure you have your best posture possible
    • Butt ENGAGED SO HARD also because rotation is important
    • Knees super straight!
    • Passe not over or under-crossed, well lifted from underneath the leg
    • Make SURE you’re going to your full releve every time you do a pirouette

    Practice tips:

    • Holding retires/passes and balancing in them (on demi)
    • Spotting exercises— sitting in a spinny chair and spotting one thing on the wall
    • Doing extremely controlled half and quarter turns, try to hold the retire/passe and your demi for as long as possible

    Ask your teacher(s) for more specific tips!
