Pirouette en dehors in fourth 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 fourth position. At or off the barre, you will learn how to work your muscles in the proper sequence of movement so that you can pirouette a quarter-turn, a half-turn, and a full turn.

This intensive is designed for those students who know how to “get on their leg,” and execute a “PING-SLAM-BOUNCE” relevé. Please read the 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 should not pirouette on carpeting – the floor should be flat and smooth so there is no friction when you turn. Wear proper ballet attire and shoes. Make sure you are thoroughly warmed up, either from the preceding class or by yourself. Set AND TEST your camera so that Finis can see your entire body from head to toe, in profile.
