Turn board

Recommended Posts



I got a turn boad (these pink plastic things) as a birthday present, to improve my shabby pirouettes. It was from a very nice dancer.

The good thing: I can practice now a few turns at home when I want,  since everything is carpet and turning on the board has round about the same resistance on carpet than turning in dance school.

The bad thing: I'm a not too small grown up man and no dance elf - this thing seems to be constructed for small girls. When I used it on dance carped, it bend almost flat...


Do you think it's reasonable to buy a quality one, perhaps made from wood? Spotting and pulling up got trained quite a bit so far, I try to practice the corrections I got for my turns in class a little bit at home - especially spotting.


What's your experience with turn boards?
