Please understand I enjoy my job and BalletTalk. Although the two may seem to be related, I prefer to be me online, not my job!

I haven't seen it, but would be interested in hearing from anyone who has.

Does the book having anything really original to say or is it the same things we usually hear about turnout?

If you go to the products page there is a link at the top of the page. It is small and written in blue.
Hope this helps.

I had a problem with the site when I put in my order so I wanted to let others know in case they run into the same issue. The order went through, but the site kept reporting an error with the credit part of the transaction. Something about communication. Anyway, I thought it hadn't gone through so I sent a mail-in order. Well it turns out that the internet order did go through. I checked my e-mail later, and I had a confirmation. So if you have a problem, wait a while first and check your e-mail for a confirmation before you attempt the order again or resort to manual methods.
I just got the video today. I ordered it on Wednesday. I watched it this evening. I think it's great. I give it two thumbs up.
The beginning really goes over a lot of anatomy which can be a little overwhelming as she uses the scientific terminology. It's a video so I can look at the picture and get the idea. I am a visual learner. So this makes everything easier to understand.
Best of all she shows safe ways to stretch effectively to increase turnout and exercises to strengthen your turnout. The video also shows the proper way to do the exercises and shows mistakes that you can make whe you attempt to compensate.
I think this was worth the double order. I am also really impressed with how fast I got it via priority mail.

I was able to cancel the duplicate order. That is great service! I didn't actually end up with a double order.

First time poster here, long time ballet dancer, teacher and mother of two dancing daughters. I adore Deborah Vogel's wisdom and ways of thinking. I have her book and most of her dvd's. I am always in search of articles on dance technique and injury prevention and found hers to be some of the best. I think her book, "Tune Up Your Turnout" is a must for anyone with any questions about how their body works. I educate parents with beginning students all the way through my advanced dancers with her techniques. As we all know, bodies come in all shapes and abilities with different needs.
Love the book,
