Subject: To finally get good, consistent turnout, my daughter broke down each portion of the dance into very small sections...
In reply to: MMK 's message, "Turn out" on 11:07:00 04/23/18 Mon

She would do just that section, concentrating on turnout and crossover - videotape it, and look back at it in slow-mo (on an iphone). If she saw her front or back foot lost turnout or crossover at any point, she repeated it until she was satisfied. Moved on to the next section, repeated this process. When she thought she had an entire step corrected, did that while videotaping, critiqued it on slow-mo, and corrected those portions. Repeated that. Continued until she could dance the full 3 or 2 1/2 steps with good turnout and crossover. Repeated this with the other dance (but the process became faster - I think she got better at attending to it).

It was a painstaking, but very do-able process. (Painstaking because I often had to serve as videographer ;)

Best of luck. Not magic, just practice. :)
