I was gonna title this I Suck at Turns. I won't because I'm trying not to be so negative to myself. However, I'm well aware that I have a big problem with balance and direction in turns and would like your thoughts on this dilemma. It's appalling. I can balance on a wobble board, on one foot, and roll down (articulating my spine, top of the head first), all the way down and then all the way up again and keep the edge of the board from touching the floor. Add movement and a partner and put me on the dance floor and all that skill goes out the window. Since I started talking about it with my pilates trainer who's a dancer, another swing dancer and a ballroom dance teacher/studio owner, I've had three separate pieces of advice: 1) take beginner ballet, 2) take beginner jazz and 3) don't do either--they take you out of the floor--and just practice practice practice. Drill spotting, take turns workshops when you can and work on turns for five minutes at the beginning of every private. (Responses in the same order as in the first sentence in this paragraph.) I'd appreciate your input.
