Re: How to Turn

I left out one thing. The point, I think, was that if you move in a coordinated fashion with all parts in the chain contributing to the movement rather than "following" (in a sense), then the proper way to turn will be whichever you want to employ. If in a rather stationary place then the heels might be perfectly reasonable. If you're exploding forward and turning then the balls of the feet. I found myself goofing around after class trying to turn different ways and had a blast turning 180 in place with the forward foot on the ball of the foot, the back foot on the heel. Interesting stuff.
