How would you describe correct turn out?
HOw would you describe correct posture?

Two questions that I have been asked and have written papers on but would appreciated everyone's and anyone's input to make sure that I have covered all area's.

Also, pertaining to the above, does anyone know of any great websites I could go to for referral?

Turnout = knees FACE side and MOVE to the side side when they bend. Note that this is different from the FEET facing side.

Posture is a lot harder to sum up in a few words. But it has to do with lengthening the spine.

Hello,

In addition to Citibob's comments, I would also add that correct turnout involves knowing and working within the limits of your body, not forcing your legs to conform to an idealized 180 degree turnout. Correct turnout is making the best of what you have, working safely so that you won't injure yourself. Remember, the majority of dance-related injuries occur in the lower legs, and many are due to incorrect placement.

Turnout- first of all turnout from the hips, knees facing out,toes facing out, don't roll your feet in.

I really can't summerize posture. :)

On the turn-out I'd say legs face side, including knees and ankles. Just a thought.
