Every time I do pirrouettes, I can do about two to three without falling to the side of my supporting leg. (ex. if i'm turning on my right leg, i fall to the right) What am I doing wrong for this to happen?

You're probably slouching, and settling into your supporting hip. You begin the pirouette, turn two or three times, then your mind goes, "there, that's over" and you forget to end. Remember, every step has a beginning, a middle and an end.

And, the end must be the HIGHEST point of the turn! :) You are probably also quitting your spot after two turns, and then it all starts to fall apart, even if you pull out the third one. The ending will not be good.
