Spend some time refining your spot without worrying about the position – try slow, then get faster, try a single, try a double, and even a triple! Be patient with yourself and get used to the feeling of turning once or multiple times in a row.
Spotting prevents dizziness and is important for pirouette rhythm. When trying multiple turns keep the spotting rhythm completely even – the tendency is to slow down after the first spot, but you need a fast second (or third) spot to keep your momentum.
Once your spot feels stronger, try adding in a passé position.
Remember to practice both sides!
