Getting a cleaner spot?


Recommended Posts



I've never noticed a problem with my spot before, but recently one of my teachers pointed out that I tend to end my spot a little bit early and then whip my head around to complete it-- almost like a twitch, or a mid-spot pause. I don't think it's very noticeable-- none of my other teachers have said anything about it-- but I'm having problems getting a consistent double pirouette and I'm trying to attack the issue from all angles.


Is there a way for me to get a smoother spot-- an exercise that I'm not remembering or something? I'm kind of stuck.


Thanks for your help!

Welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, Novaverse!!


Do you do that little twitch when you are completing a single? Can you end a single pirouette en relevé and hold the retiré momentarily?
