    Hi Sandi!I hope you are well! In Rome workshops you spoke about what's going on with the head during the Triple Egyptian. You also said the same applies to the Egyptian Full Turn. Was it that the head leads the turn, as it does in so many of the other steps? Or was it more like a spotting spin where it stays in position as long as possible before whipping around? I remember having a real light bulb moment and then I didn't write it down! Thanks in advance for clarifying!

    I'd like to know Sandi's answer to this as well!

    Hi Charlotte!  Was so great to see and work with you in Rome!All the head turns for half and triple and full turns are the same as spotting for spins.  You mark your spot in your mind (like for half turns, you know you're landing to the back) and after the cue, whip your head around to find that spot while the body moves underneath.  It keeps the turns and landings clean and saves you from getting dizzy!  🙂

    Thanks Sandi!So the head moves pretty much at the same time as the body then?Your Egyptian turns are so sharp and snappy. I'm working on trying to emulate that! 🙂

    I would say that my head beats my body to the spot, just a little.

    Yes, it's a subtle spot but the head always wants to see where it's taking the body before committing to the turn.
