* Don't move your heel before you turn.
* Use your spot. Free the head and relax the upper body.
* Good turns come from your work throughout the barre and center, especially from plies, releves, and petit allegro.
* Don't sacrifice form. There's no point to lots of turns without form. In fact, everyone just wants them to stop. From "Pirouette Tips from the Pros: Gillian Murphy," in The Ballet Companion (Fireside, 2005).
