Rotation from the Hips

15 min - Tutorial


Learn tools to help you find the rotation in your hips in this tutorial with Diane Diefenderfer. She demonstrates Footwork and Leg Circles on the Reformer to show how the "turnout" should start at the hips and how you need the use of the gluteals and a neutral pelvis to maintain your position. Working in a turned out position is just as important as working in parallel, and these tips will ensure that you are in alignment.

Thank you Diane. Very clear, consist explanation. Having the exact same leg configuration, I know that finding the external rotation of just the hip is not always easy, but necessary. And combining that with good spine placement is so important. Thanks for sharing this on PA.

Great tutorial Diane! Wonderful explanations of the various details involved with turnout from the hip. Thank you for articulating your attention to detail.
That was great, loved the cues and the importance of neutral pelvis. I have so many clients with posterior tilt.
Love it.. Thank you.. Can't wait to use it tomorrow..
Really clear explanation - I will use the mixture of parallel and turnout with my dancer clients. Thanks
