can i do developpés to the front or only to the side... sorry that is a really elementary question. but if i did them to the front would i just not turn out my foot? thanks so much

Always preserve turnout, but if you're talking about casual warmup, without any particular oomph behind it, then a little loosening of standard turnout doesn't hurt, at least BEFORE class starts!;) You lose turnout, you start to lose ballet, and go into other forms of dance.

And Melissa, be very sure that you are not ever thinking of turning out your FOOT! Rotate your leg, from the hip!

oh yeah thats what i meant :) i realized i said foot after i posted it, i am trying to work on turning out from my hip and not from my knee, although if i force it more i get a much better turnout, especially in 5th. but i'm thinking thats bad :) thanks again for both of your wisdom!! :)
