Dancers have to focus on so much when they are dancing, and when they are in class. One of the most important things is turnout. I can't tell you how much it irks me to see a dancer either forcing his/her turnout or (worst of all) not even reaching their turnout. Nothing is more unattractive for a dancer than having a knee turned forward in passe or during a developpe.
Today I am sharing a great idea that you can try if you have trouble reaching your turnout. In order to reach turnout, you must strengthen the muscles and stretch them. This exercise will help do both.
Tie a TheraBand around a barre that is above hip height and wrap the other end around your knee. With your leg in passe, turn your leg in and out. Repeat this exercise up to 20 times. Eventually you will be able to increase the resistance. You will start to see a difference within 2 weeks if you perform this exercise twice a week.
Until next time,
