Does anybody have advice on how to do a heel stretch turn? im not sure if thats what its called but you do a double and bring your leg up to a heel stretch. i have a problem balancing when i try to bring my leg up. i can do a heel stretch standing but i can't turn it without falling. thanks!

What you're talking about is a very difficult advanced character dance step used in the cancan. A pirouette ending in a pied dans la main is just plain strength and flexibility. You can also do this step with the turn continuing while you are in the pied dans la main, and you keep hopping as if doing a man's grand pirouette sautillé. Not a trick for any but the most experienced and well-trained character dancers.
