How to Develop your ballet turn-out
In order to develop ballet turnout, it is important that you remember that relaxation is the key. Your hip joint must be loose and relaxed at all times, since all movement is done based on turnout. You must stay within your own body. Turnout is individual. The goal is to reach the maximum turnout for your own body and to stay within it. You have to make sure that your body placement is correct: i.e. your body alignment. In first position, your hips should be over your feet. Make sure that your pelvis isn't tilted. Try to keep your hips relaxed, when you do that. Make sure that your arches are up. For Dehors, try to imagine your feet moving from the front of the knee outward.
