Looking for a safe way to improve your dancers’ turnout? Join Dance Medicine Specialist Alexis Sams, PT for a live session focused on assessing and improving external rotation of the hip (aka “Turnout”) in dancers. During this session you’ll learn: how to determine how much natural rotation your dancer has, how to assess the functional use and strength of the external rotators, exercises, activities and teaching tips to help your students use their rotation.



Assessing and Improving Turnout:
A practical approach for dance instructors

Assess turnout with confidence

Discover each dancers’ own restrictions

Reduce tight and painful hips

Increase working leg height

Improve flexibility AND strength of turnout

INSTRUCTORS, DIRECTORS, OWNERS !!!Want to know how whether to stretch or strengthen to increase turnout?Want to know what other things to do other than stretching?

Want dance-specific conditioning exercises to make your dancers’ turnout greater and stronger?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then this is the program for you!
One thing is certain…dancers, instructors, and even parents are all concerned about improving turnout.  Some want that perfect 90 degrees of rotation, others want equal rotation in both hips, others want rotation that doesn’t hurt and is easy to hold in the air.


So AZDM has created this training session to empower dance professionals with more knowledge, more skills, and more methods to make sure their dancers achieve their turnout goals.


Imagine being able to know which muscles need to be released or strengthened to maintain rotation during turns…

Imagine being able to recommend specific exercises to help your  students with “tight hips” students improve their turnout flexibility (here’s a tip…it’s not always just about stretching)…

Imagine being able to get rid of the popping and clicking sounds in the hip during kicks..


That’s what the Assessing and Improving Turnout training session will do for you.
