i really like your advice, but i have a question about one part: Also, remember when your releve into a pirouette, to slide your foot under you like have an inch or so. do you mean after you prepare and go to turn, you scoot your foot back?

How do you land your turns. I feel every teacher wants you to land them differently. One teacher has them land feet together one as them landing in fourth. The kids are confused on which is the correct way. I don't think there is a correct way it really depends on your next step.

Thanks so much for posting this!!

I discovered something just a few seconds ago and I ran up here to type this in:

Ok, so I noticed that when I fell out of my pirouette it was because I was leaning a little to much to the right (on my left foot, it was a right pirouette) so then I tried again and I felt myself about to fall out of it but then I straightened my left foot so that on demi (sp?) all the weight was spread out and then I finished it well!!

I just thought I'd share that. :)I wonder if that would work with fouettes?

Thank you for this! I'm not much of a turner; I pride myself in being a jumper(: Lately I've been discouraged with turning. I decided to get up and practice and after a few tries I did 4 pirouettes. (Normally I can only do a double) I realized the reason I could not as many before was because I was simply not spotting. So, thank you, this was a nice reminder:)

Thanks so much for the post! Turns are my weakest point as far as technique goes, and I believe that this will help very much. My biggest problem is keeping my back straight and not arching, but I am improving my core strength and will soon be able to keep it pulled in. I can't give karma yet, but the minute I can, the first bit goes straight to you!

My teacher always says i drop my right shoulder and it throws off my balance, but i don't know how to fix it... oh well. practice makes perfect!
I'm pretty good at illusions though.

Great guide! As an experienced dancer, I understand what you are saying about stamp turns. But I think that a newer dancer might not be able to visualize it as easily. Other than that, love it!(:
