Zoom Live: Strengthen Your Turnout
October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm EDT$15
Discover & Use Your True Potential.
Turnout defines classical ballet technique. The outward rotation of the legs in the hips expands the dancer’s range of movement and creates beautiful body positions unique to the art of ballet. Adults who have limited turnout and flexibility and had little or no ballet training must learn how to find their turnout potential and maximize it. All beginner ballet at home classes for adults should provide detailed instructions and examples on how to turnout correctly without stress and strain. The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique teaches adult ballet beginners how to access and utilize the muscles in the groin that afford turnout. In this ballet at home class adult ballet beginners find their turnout safely by slowly performing exercises sitting on the floor and standing alone in center floor. Adult ballet beginners who have taken this class have been surprised to learn they can improve their turnout and move with balletic elegance and grace.
3 exercises sitting on the floor with enough space to split your legs sideways. 9 standing exercises. 2 standing exercises are done in place; 4 standing exercises require space to take 2 large steps forward & back; 3 standing exercises require space to take 3 steps sideways in second position first to the right, then the left. Try to move your furniture so you have as much floor space as possible so that you can travel as much as possible. Ideally (you may have to rearrange your furniture) you have an open space approximately 5 feet by 5 feet so that you can move forward, backward, and sideways.
Dress for ballet class or yoga or exercise so you can see your groin area and outline of your body and legs. Try to have a mirror as self-observation is very important.
