Re: VERY Basic Footwork Question

Dirk,
you made a very good point most people don't notice.
The only problem is do not align your heels in you stance, for the reason you said. From this aligment, when you turn 180 on your "balls" (of the feet of course), which are the balls under the big toes, your legs turn out crossed.
In your stance align these balls, so you can turn on them and your legs don't get crossed. So you keep good posture and balance while turning.
