Pirouette is one of the classic dance moves in dance. It is not easy for everyone, but if you are determined and ready to train, you can learn how to pirouette as well as an experienced dancer.
Step 1. You will need a spacious room with a non-slip floor
Polished wood is not suitable for this purpose, but vinyl or linoleum floors will be just right.
Step 2. Take the necessary precautions in case of a fall
Remove pets and all sharp and dangerous objects from the room.
Step 3. Decide on what you will have on your feet
Spinning in socks on a slippery floor is fraught with falling, and spinning barefoot is too difficult. Either ballet shoes or jazz shoes are best. If you don't have them, you can try dancing barefoot on the carpet. You can also try modern shoes like CapezioFootUndeez or Dance Paws.
Step 4. Start with single turns
Step 5. Work out the position prior to rotation
Your retire position must be flawless before starting the rotation.
- The toe should be at or above the knee.
- Do not place the working foot perpendicular to the supporting leg. You should feel support in your hip.
- Pull in your stomach, throw your shoulders back. Keep your shoulders at the same height as your hips.
- Straighten your supporting leg.
- Your toes should be as high as possible.
Step 6. Place your feet in fourth position
When turning to the right, the left foot should be extended forward. Distribute your weight evenly across both feet so you can push off with your right foot.
Step 7. Bend your right arm in front of you, palm to the body, elbow slightly to the side
The toes are just above the abdomen. The shoulder is laid back. Step 8. Extend your left arm to the side, palm forward, slightly below shoulder level.
Do not pull your elbow back.
Step 9. Bend your knees
Step 10. Briskly push off with your right foot into retire position on releve
At the same time, move your left hand to the first position and rotate to the right.
Step 11. While turning, look at one point on the wall at eye level
As you turn, try to keep her in sight at all times. With each turn, you will have to turn your head to find that point again. This is called spotting (from the English 'spot' - a spot, a point).
Step 12. After finishing your workout, return to fifth position
Step 13. Always smile
Don't give up when something doesn't work out for you. Just practice over and over; At first, you may be disheartened by the thought that nothing is working out, but all the dancers practice pirouettes, fall and stumble, even during performances.
- Make sure your hips are at shoulder level when pivoting and your spine should not be curved. This will provide you with a good balance.
- Keep your supporting leg gracefully and straight as you turn.
- Do not give up! It is very important to be confident in your turns in class.
- Try to keep your balance at the end of each turn before trying a few turns.
- Use your imagination! Imagine that someone is tugging at the string at the top of your head.
- Keep the support knee straight and taut. This will help support yourself.
- The dramatic increase in height can upset your balance a little. If you are growing up and your dancing abilities are not what they used to be, do not despair - over time, they will return to you along with balance.
- Concentrate not on the bend, but on how to get as high as possible. The turn will turn out when you learn to "go up".
- It is important to suck in your belly so that you look beautiful.
- Keep your torso taut to maintain balance.
