Having trouble with your turn out while dancing?

Does your hip cramp up every time you try to push your turn out?

Have you been stretching heaps but still is struggling with your turn out?

Well stay tuned because in this blog I’ll show you some tips and strategies that will help improve your turn out while dancing.


Holding your turnout requires not only muscles & joint flexibility but also muscles strength to be able to prolong the hold without shaking and at the same time making it look graceful & effortless.

In this video I’ll run through a few simple tests to see if length or strength is your limiting factor that prevents you from maintaining your turn out.

Who knows? You might realise it’s actually both the flexibility & the strength that is limiting you!

Keeping in mind these tips/advice are of general nature and do not take your injuries/history into considerations. If you are experiencing any pain or would like an individualised tailored program to help improve your dancing, I highly recommend you speak to any one of your physiotherapists to guide you through your dance journey.
