Thanks for posting this up. Seeing that I have started dance late it really is hard sometimes to always remeber to dance turnedout especially in ballet!!!! Hopefully these exercises will increase, strengthen my turnout to the point where I don't have to think about it. Can't wait to start using these. Thanks again.

I tried this today, and it really works my turnout muscles! I'm going to do it before every class, just to engage those muscles! Thank you!

How thoughtful of you to take the time to do this! There are no good classes in my neighborhood, so I can only afford to take an open class once a month in New York, this is great and will definately help keep me in shape for each class!

Are there any Irish dancers who have used this excercise? I was wondering how it worked for them vs ballet dancers. I think I will try it :)

^AussieLaura...My dd dances Irish, and I can't wait to get home and have her do some of the exercises. She has turnout, but doesn't hold it well as she dances. Hopefully these exercises will help her feel the turnout more and help her hold it.

Just visiting from the Irish boards and I have a feeling this post is going to save my life! :)
I have good turn out but I've been off due to injury for three months so all my muscles have withered away and now I need to start rebuilding those turnout muscles.

Did you take the videos down? They don't work when I click on them :(

The tutorials are still great, but I can't understand all of them!

AussieLaura recommended this to me on another board we're both members of, and this is a LIFESAVER!

I got kicked out of ballet a long time ago (as in at age four), and I've always wondered if my sucky turnout had something to do with it.

Can't wait to try it out. Sounds like the people who have tried it had good reviews about it. Actually I think I think I will try it now!!!!! =)
