This video helps to separate fact from fiction. You will learn where turnout actually occurs in the body and determine important structural considerations. You’ll learn how to test for true, functional turnout…and it’s not lying in the frog position! Deborah will identify alignment issues such as tibial torsion, hyperextension, and tight hip flexors that interfere with efficient and effective turnout using both an anatomical model and real dancers. You will discover how to increase range of motion at the hip through simple stretches and strengtheners that balance the necessary muscles without compromising the body. Finally, you will learn how to stabilize turnout in the standing position, increasing your ability to become a strong, dynamic, and graceful dancer…without injuring yourself. (44 min.)
