Pirouette en dehors in fifth position

In this hour-long intensive limited to only 10 students, we will dissect and practice the pirouette en dehors (outside turn – turning away from the supporting leg) from the fifth position. At or off the barre, you will learn how to work your muscles in the proper sequence of movement so that you can execute a pirouette first as a quarter-turn, then a half-turn, and possibly a full turn.

This intensive is designed for those students who know how to “get on their leg,” and execute a “ping-relevé.” Please read the description and list of exercises to make sure you are technically strong enough to participate fully. You should have a barre or a high-backed chair that is shoulder level for support. You must be warmed up, wearing proper ballet attire and shoes, either from the preceding class or on your own. You need little space since you will turn in place. There are no traveling steps. Set AND TEST your camera so that Finis can see your entire body from head to toe, in profile. To avoid twisting your knee or ankle, do not do this class on a rug or carpeting. You must work on a flat smooth floor.
