Ballet 101 - Intro to Turns

Don Wilson


The pirouette is the classical ballet turn. In this basic class we'll explore the posture, balance, core strength and form needed to turn. After a brief discussion and warm-up we'll dive into form and start turning! No experience is required. Clothing that allows range of motion and socks or dance shoes are encouraged.


Don has been an enthusiastic ballet student for several years at several Philadelphia studios, specializing in several types of turns. After several hundred hours of instruction, it will be exciting to bring this experience to the PEX community.
