hello everyone! i find that when i'm in first position i can't turn out as well without sticking my tailbone out. i think it's because i'm not using it from my hips as much as i should be. are there any certain streches that you can do to work your turn out?

Dancin Babe - I suggest that you use the "search" at the top of the page and type in "turnout" and you will come up with many threads to help.<P>Here are two to get you started:<P><BR><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum7/HTML/000499.html><B>TURNOUT - A BALLET BASIC</B></A><P><BR><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum7/HTML/000080.html><B>TURNOUT</B></A><P>Remember you can't go past the turnout that is natural to you, that you can work with, and that you are still alighned correctly. Turningout with incorrect alignment - either in your hips, back or knees, is wrong. You can't use it correctly, its inefficient, and unsafe.<P>So find out where your natural turnout in your hips is, and that's what you use.<P>I think if you read those threads and any more than you find with a "search" - you will get some answers to your questions.<BR>

Also look at a thread that have started recently that discusses sticking your tail out in relation to over-turning out your feet.<P><A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum19/HTML/000003.html" TARGET=_blank>KEEPING TAILS TUCKED </A>
