Mine is pirouette en dehors, from 4th position, to the right. It's a bit funny that I like especially this direction, because my left ankle is the worse one. I mean, just half a year ago there was handful of metal in it.
Second favorite would be... Well, none other but en dehors, from 4th, to the left!
Hmmmmm.... Actually. As I started writing this AND thinking about it - I can't choose between them. Really. Tomorrow there's going to be a class. I Have to try them for good and make up my mind.
But what I can honestly say, is that en dedans is more difficult, no matter what the starting / prepairing position is. 4th or 5th. From fourth the reason might be that one has to be more on the supporting leg (en dehors more on both feet) and at that point I try to swish with the same hand (as the supporting leg) too much and end up getting speed way more than I need... Or something :D
If there was a workshop dealing with pirouettes for dummies, I'd be taking it for sure. I know the basics, but lack the final skills to put them in practice. With my "dance-sisters" there's often talk about these moves and the more advanced ones do give excellent advice. I've started collecting them to a notebook, shall make a post later on to summarize them. There are just so many little things to remember - and they all have a huge effect on the final result. If only one would remember all of them when performing the turn - and would be able to actualise them -.-
I shall end today with this video with two great exercises. And a nice-looking man ;)
