Guest LaurieM Posted July 19, 2004 Report Share Posted July 19, 2004 After reading another thread about forcing turnout, I realised that's exactly what I've been doing, albeit involuntarily. While I can achieve a solid 2nd position with my left leg, I don't have the same degree of turnout with my right, so in order to achieve a "solid" 2nd with that leg, I either have to force myself into that position (ack!), or "lead" with my hips. (I don't think I've explained that correctly - I mean that instead of keeping my hips squared and leveled, I would sort of move it / tip it sideways so that my foot could be out to 2nd without actually needing to be turned out. Hope that makes sense. Of course, in doing so it becomes slightly more difficult to maintain the good turnout on my other leg.) Are there any good ways to work on balancing your turnout? At the moment, I just stand in whichever position the leg with the LEAST amount of turnout can comfortably stand in. Quote Link to comment
