Online Learning for Dancers, Instructors, Entrepreneurs & Speakers.
Learn & grow at your own pace with Magna’s guided instruction.
Do you struggle to maintain balance and control in your turns & spins?
My turns & spins look completely different than how they did at the beginning of this course. Magna is very detail-oriented and provides high-quality instruction on how to properly execute every movement. Her progressive approach makes everything easy to follow.
Understanding leads to better results!
Losing your balance during footwork means you might miss a step or be off time. Losing your balance during turns and spins, however, affects many more things: your connection to your partner, how heavy you feel, dizziness, possible injury, and a longer recovery back into the dance.
Understanding how to execute our turns in a way that allows us to stay balanced, controlled, on time, and ready for the next movement not only improves our dance technique but our entire dance experience.
This masterclass will improve your dance technique and increase your confidence on the dance floor!
This course provides very detailed, step-by-step, layer-by-layer instruction to turn techniques helping you understand how your body works when turning, stepping, and dancing in general.

I liked how this course progressively showed how understanding pivots and foot positioning can be used to create proper turns and spins, and complete the landing with precision and control. I didn’t realize I needed this course and would take it again.
There are a lot of factors to spins and turns but Magna makes them very accessible and attainable. Everything was broken down in a practical and enjoyable way. Working on traveling turns was especially exciting because it’s something I didn’t even think I could attempt.
