Turns a la seconde


Recommended Posts

What is a good, and easy to learn, finidh to a set of turns a la seconde?


Retire turns are too fast and I want to fall over.

Mike, use the grands pirouettes immediately preceding the pull in as a momentum brake. And when you do pull in, have the foot as high up on the leg as you can place it, in order to have it act like a governor on a drive shaft, and slow you down.
