Zoom Live: Strengthen Your Turnout
Thursday, May 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$15
Discover & Display Your Maximum Turnout.
Turnout defines classical ballet technique. The outward rotation of the legs in the hips expands the dancer’s range of movement & creates beautiful body positions unique to the art of ballet. Adults who have limited turnout & flexibility & had little or no ballet training must learn how to find their turnout potential, maximize it, & display it in order to correctly perform ballet movements. This class will help you do it.
In this class you will learn how to access & utilize the muscles in your groin that affect your turnout. You will mainly be stretching these muscles, but at the same time you will perform every movement slowly, according to your own ability, in order to avoid muscle strain. You will perform exercises sitting on the floor & standing alone in center floor which will improve the way you look, feel, & move, & strengthen your turnout.
3 exercises sitting on the floor, 8 exercises standing alone in center floor (some stationary, some moving sideways, some moving forward on the diagonal in classical ballet poses, & 2 choreographed adagios).
Dress for ballet or yoga or exercise class. Ballet shoes or socks are required so you can slide and point your feet. Please, no long loose hair. Dress like a dancer!
This 90-minute class costs $15
