Okay, for the last like 3- 4 months my pirouettes have been pretty good doubles no leaning falling or anything which used to always happene in the beginning of last year. Then all of a suden a few days ago they werent good at all... Im so confused because I thought I had them under control and my teachers all say that Im a good turner and have the right feel for turns... Why does this happen? I happens every once in a great while...

My dance teachers say that, even for professional dancers, pirouettes are the thing where your ability varies most. :) But disregarding that, even the best dancers have bad days. No dancer is perfect; we just all try to be. :D The best you can do is just do your best, even on the bad days.

We all go through phases, where different things cause us different problems, and then go away. Margot Fonteyn used to have trouble with fouett├ęs, which were never her strongest point anyway, until a partner called out to her, "Left shoulder front!" Then she was fine for the rest of her career.

I know what you mean. Like Major Mel said, we go through what you can call phases. I have the same problem as you dance4life87. It happens to everyone sometimes, we all have our bad turning days. :party: In the mean time, just work on them and I'm sure they will come back to you! :)
