Course outline

About this course.

In this course I will be sharing all my exercises, tips and technique to getting better fouettés.

There are three lessons in this course which will cover, barre exercises to find the correct muscle activation and alignment of hips as well as body. Pirouettes at the barre mastering co ordination of turn and pull up, centre fouetté drills to get you on your leg and in control of the turn starting with quarter turns and leading up to multiple, also helping you begin and end the fouetté turns which is sometimes the hardest thing.

Then finally going over the imagery of the turn, exactly what to think about and trying to do 32 fouettés as well as much more!

I am very excited about this course and with all these things you can begin to practice and eventually master our fouettés. suitable for all levels

Course breakdown.
Fouetté Course – Lesson 1
13:00

In this lesson I will be sharing key exercises at the barre we can do to master the correct muscle usage for fouetté turns as well as the placement required to help us get there. We will then progress to doing turns on the barre to help us find the “pull up” of the body and co ordination needed.

Fouetté Course – Lesson 2
10:00

In this lesson I will be sharing exercises in the centre for balance and control of your corps and supporting leg. This lesson will really help you find the pull up, find your axis and sweet spot of balance as well as mastering the control required to stand on the same spot each time we do fouettés. Isabella will also cover how to take off with a double turn and start your fouettés effectively!

Fouetté Course – Lesson 3
04:00

In this final lesson we will be working on mastering the imagery and thought process behind doing 32 fouettés as well as the muscle stamina required to complete them. we will then try together a few times! Watch Isabella as she does the fouettés so you can see how she uses her body. The beauty of an online course is you can rewind anytime to watch and try again! Have fun and practice!

Meet your teacher.
