Since taking up formal dance training 8 years ago, one of the my favorite challenges was learning how to turn as I spun my prop!
As it turns out there are a lot of ways to go about this, including chaînés, pique, and fouetté turns.
It's something that people have frequently told me they really dig about my style of spinning as I've worked very hard to integrate these turns into my flow.
As part of my series on dance/poi fusion, this month I'm covering how to turn with your body while you're spinning. And of course the most important part: how to do real pirouettes. Not just spinning around quickly, but REAL pirouettes.
