BRINGING TOGETHER THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TURNS

 Most ballet students and professionals agree that turns can be one of the most universally challenging aspects of ballet technique. In the standard ballet technique class, only a limited amount of time can be dedicated to working on pirouettes, and each student doesn’t always get the individual attention needed to improve their turns.
