Welcome: The Importance of Turnout in Ballet
Description: Proper turn out is essential for many forms of dance, especially ballet. Performing a turnout position by means of force, when one does not have the strength or control to handle the amount of pressure, can lead to injuries. Therefore, it is important to know the correct techniques of turning out from the hips to help a dancer achieve better balance, more flexibility, more strength, and freer movements.
