I get a lot of question "how to stop my tour endehors/endedans".
Can somebody give me some advice?

It takes a lot of practice to pirouette well. Some dancers have natural turning ability, which helps, but is not absolutely essential to be able to turn decently. You need to work on your placement, feeling your back come around; your spot; your eye level/gaze; your arm coordination; etc. You will learn to have a different amount of force or impetus for single, double, triple. It helps in "stopping" your turn to think of finishing the pirouette "up", like a spiral going up. This makes the finish or landing of the turn less like a "crash" landing :wink: .

I do not know if you have ever seen Cuban dancers, but on these dancers you can often see clearly this pulling up in the body and turn out on the standing leg at the end of the pirouettes, just like Gina discribed!

Have fun trying it out.
