I've never noticed this before, but yesterday when I was relaxing in a butterfly position on the floor, one of my legs was totally on the ground, and one was about an inch off it. What should I do about uneven turnout?

Not unusual, ballerinababe :) Most of us are not totally symmetrical, and have one side with better rotation, one foot slightly better, extension more flexible on one side, etc. Just like we turn naturally to one side better than the other. The only answer is to work harder on the weaker side!

Yes, I have the same situation. While neither of my legs is amazingly turned out, my right is good enough but my left is significantly worse! What's your advice?

Do extra work on the weaker side. Work on your tendus, dégagés, and especially rond de jambes, and do more with the weak side than you do with the better side.

I'm the same way, my right hip is a lot less turned out than my left. I just try to work on it a lot in class and do more excercises with it. Its hard because its a lot more fun to do your good leg;)
