If you’ve never done a pirouette, or are having trouble turning, this is for you. You begin slowly, making half and full turns on two feet (assemblé soutenu); next, you make a full turn slowly on a flat foot (promenade); you add movement to the extended leg (grand rond de jambe) in another promenade; you will identify the muscles that turn your plié; and finally you will practice pirouettes en dehors and en dedans, concluding with a pirouette in the attitude position. Finis shows each exercise, Saige Miller demonstrates, Finis analyzes and corrects, and Saige repeats. The CD music is by Scott Killian.
