Spin, Whirl, Twirl

There are so many things to think about when practicing turns in dance class.  Alignment and force, spotting and arms, turn out, centering and pulling up, etc., etc.  But there is one word that should be on that list that usually isn’t:

 ENJOY

Stop struggling through your turns and enjoy turning!  Smile and relax a little – it will make ALL the difference.  Try it – and let me know how it works for you!
