Falls & Fear of
Many dancers struggle with fear of turning or falling out, confidence, inconsistently clean turns, and choking on stage. AGH!
The secret is PRACTICE and a proper foundation. I have seen a lot of pirouettes at competitions that are many, many, many rotations BUT sloppy. You wouldn't really know what sloppy is unless you know the ins and outs of how they actually work and should look. Judges and teachers, and classmates, are watching. Annoying... I know. So much pressure which does not help at all.
The time to work on your pirouettes is right now. Then you can look back in a couple of months and be glad you started when you did.
Tell a friend that might like to join you! I appreciate it.
