Pirouettes 1. Spot - I know some people think you can get around without spotting, and that’s fine for singles and doubles. But try to do more than that and you will get dizzy and fall over. Focus on a single thing, and try to hold it for as long as you can before whipping your head around 2. Arms - Keep your arms steady with out making them stiff. Stiff arms will make it harder to go around, but floppy arms will throw off your balance. 3. Plié - Your plié is your momentum. It is what gets you around. 4. Releve - Make sure that your front foot is flat on the ground until it is time to releve and turn. A lot of people put their front foot in forced arch without knowing it. 5. Strong center - Pull up in your core when turning. This will help you keep your balance.
I hope this was helpful. Send me messages letting me know what else you would like to see from me : )
Make sure that your arms are high enough, sometimes the force of the turn brings them down, making the turn less aesthetically pleasing and more difficult.
Make sure the leg is in a high enough retire position and turned out. Both these things will make the turn easier, while again making it look better.
Imagining that you are taking off/growing taller is a good visual to aid in pulling up in your core.
I am here to post millions of ballet related pictures, videos, and god knows what else.
If you want to ask me questions about ballet technique etcetera, that would probably make my day.
Note: I am new to tumblr, and very confused.
