Remember when turning to lift from the head and tighten your tummy muscles to keep everything tight and straight!.

Use your arms carefully - don't crank up too much because slinging your arms can throw you off balance!.


A good excercise to practice/prepare for fouette turns is at the barre!. From a pase en releve, extend and straighten your leg foward!. Rand de jambe around to the back and bring back through to passe!. This is the general path your leg would follow in a bent-leg fouette turn!. As you become comfortable with this you can begin turning with it (away from the barre)!. I would do singles first, and starting out you will probably have to catch yourself with the barre, but as your balance and technique improve you should be able to do move to center floor!.

With fouette turns, you should prepare by slightly bending your supporting leg into a demi plie!. Your other leg will be straight in front of you and as you rand de jambe around you lift into releve!. You should always plie while facing front and lift into releve for the rest of the turn!.

make sure you spot and keep your pose high and posture good dont lean to far one way you'll fall out of it, keep your arms in the proper place or you will fall you want to kinda whip yourseft around on fouette turns and don't hop!. mostly practice over and over repetition is key!. :) good luckWww@QuestionHome@Com
