In this 2 minute 20 second video lesson you will hear Paul Mathenson explain your hip and free leg placement in your backward outside counter turn. Paul uses a closed free leg position on entry and then a closed position on your exit. Paul is constantly demonstrating the turn and position as you go allowing you to hear and see the positions.
Paul shows the importance of controlling your rotation and how to keep things nice and still throughout your turn. This will help you execute clean turn which is very important when you are doing step sequences.
Paul then discusses you free leg and how it can be harmful and can junk up your turn instead of making it fancy.
Paul then talks about the common error of cranking the turn and switching edges.
