Hi! My name is Katie Jackson, and I'm here at Studio Bleu Dance Center in Ashburn, Virginia. Today, I'm going to show you how to Jazz Dance. We're going to start off learning how to do a Fouette Turn. And now, I'll break it break it down for you.
We start off prepping our foot to the side, make sure you knee nice and straight all the way through our toe, make sure it's nice and pointed. I'm going to bring it back to the back. My left foot is going to be nice and bent, my right foot is in the back, my heel is popped up in the back, my weight is centered, my arms are nice and strong.
Now, what's going to happen is, I'm going to turn. My right leg is going to come out, so I am going to land here. It's going to come out to the side, bring it in, come back down. As my leg was out to the side, I rise up on my left side in what we call relevé or you rise up on to your tip toes. Out, up, down, out. Make sure our abs are nice and tight, we pull all the way up through are thigh, so it's nice and straight. Here up, and down, up and down, up and down, and now I'll demonstrate. Nice and slow.
And now, I'll do them at a faster pace. It is definitely easier to do them faster, because you have the momentum. It does not take as much control. Make sure your legs are nice and straight, your abs is nice and tight, and your arms stay locked. Make sure you pull up through your spine, as there is something pulling you up through your head, and you will keep your spine nice and elongated, keep you in control. Now, at full speed.
Now, make sure as you do these that you constantly spot. If you do not spot, you'll end up getting dizzy it makes it very hard to do the turn. So as we spot, make sure you look at something straight in front of you, keep looking, looking, until you can't look anymore and then whip you head. One more time at full speed. And that's how you do a Fouette turn. And now, I'm going to teach how to do an A La Seconde Turn.
