  1. Hello. I have like 3 questios for anyone who can answer it. 1. How do I turn out my leg when pirouetting more. I often find that my leg turns in. 2. how do I keep my arms strong and up. They also can something find there way coming down to my hips sometimes. 3. How do I make sure that I am rising up on the the pirouette on pointe correctly. I used to accidentally step on pointe to turn and I know that you need to more eleve into it. ( I’m not sure if I’m describing it correctly so I included a gif to show how I know you are supposed to get into it) Thank you!

    I have consistent triple pirouettes en pointe but I can only get 4 rotations on a good day if I'm lucky and I haven't been able to get more than that. How can I get 5-6 rotations consistently by the end of the year?
  3. I feel like I could write a book on the whys and wherefores of spotting from the wonderful tuition and visualisations several very well respected teachers have given me.... but I still can't spot!!!!!! After much analysis and probably a bit of overthinking it, I feel I have two main shortcomings: 1) I actually can't see the spot point very well in the first place and then the whole of my vision becomes rather a blur until after the turn. 2) I REALLY hate the creaky feeling spotting gives me in my ears so I think I hold my head stiff to avoid this. AAAAGGGHHHH!!!!!! Any suggestions will be gratefully received
  4. A scientific study on how dancers deal with pirouettes has had some coverage this morning, including Deborah Bull demonstrating to the Today programme sitting on an office chair. A link to a report on the study is here: http://www.science20.com/news_articles/ballet_dancers_brains_are_different_too-121284 And Imperial College has posted this since I posted Links: http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/newssummary/news_26-9-2013-17-43-4 Other coverage on this Google page: http://news.google.com/news/rtc?ncl=dwwFLP03qPgn7XM&ned=uk&siidp=3e2e8244a57c0f4e4f198ed1a3b7c3c3d667
