Ballet turns in physics

Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

In a turning jump, the performer leaps from the floor with no apparent spin and somehow turns on the spin and midair. just before the performer lands, the spinning is turned off. 

A fouette turn is a series of continuous pirouettes in which the performer turns on one foot while periodically extending the opposite leg outward and then drawing it inward. 

In both of these examples how is rotation accomplished?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Balance, arm spin and the head angle have a lot to do with successful spins.  The head and arms will allow the spin the ability to be powerful and strong.  If the twist of the hips, arms, and legs exert enough energy, the ballerina could spin for a while.  To leap, the legs have to be strong and moving in the same direction.  Having an equilibrium, or balance wilk make the spins elegant and stable.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
