irishprincess Posted May 7, 2008 Report Share Posted May 7, 2008 I'm not a great "spinner". Although every part of me longs to do sweet fouette turns, I'm still stuck on basic pirouettes. I practice constantly, but I've noticed a trend in myself. I like coup turns. When my foot is coup in front of my standing leg, I do pretty well on turning. (Not sure if that's the official term, but...) Bringing my toe to my knee always manages to knock me over. Now, I realize a real pirouette has to have to the toe to the knee......but can I learn anything from my coup success? Why is the knee throwing off my balance so badly? Quote Link to comment
