*NEW Assessing Turnout

In this video we shall gage an idea of our current turnout range and identify where we may be restricted. When it comes to improving your range and control in turnout, the more you know about the anatomy of turnout, the better. I recommend watching the “Anatomy of turnout’ lesson before this one.

This information can then help you to select mobilizers that will be the most effective in improving your range safely. Grab a notebook, pen and perhaps your phone to take images and let’s go!

Mindfulness & Mobility – Turnout. Internal Hip Rotation Focus.

After my last workshop weekend it was amazing to see once again so many differences when it comes to dancer’s hips. We truly are unique beings. Many dancers, when we did a hip rotation assessment found that they had great external rotation and lacked internal rotation & vice versa.

If the hip internal rotator muscles are weak and tight this will limit the amount of external rotation that can happen.

Give this class a go and note what you notice.. Cramping? Very limited range? If you have any questions please ask. You will soon find a Turnout  assessment masterclass in your lesson area to get to the bottom as much as possible on where you  might be limited.

Live class Turnout & Core strength (bonus class)

Hi everyone, Chloey here! I took a live class in Raleigh NC recently and decided to record it and share with you all. It’s a class focused on turnout and core strength. If you’re a dance teacher on the academy, feel free to play it to your dancers at class or of course dancers can take it in the comfort of their own home. I hope it’s good to you and if you’ve any questions, ask away!

TURNOUT class with Fran

This class can be used on its own or before dance practice and training to help to enhance your mobility and strength for turnout! Enjoy it x

Movement prep. Adductor switches.

This stretch opens up those inner thighs (the cross over muscles) whilst also helping out our external rotators (turnout muscles) ohhhh and ankle mobility – So a great all rounder!
