Meet - Ikolo Griffin -Professional Pirouette Coach

The Just Turns "Origin Story"

Throughout his 23 year career as a professional dancer, Ikolo danced many of the roles given to the best turner of the company. One day, he started helping some of the dancers in the company with their turns and it occurred to him that dancers from all over the dance world and every age and level would benefit from being able to work on turns outside the rehearsal and class setting. He then gathered all the information about turns and turning, and boiled it down to its fundamentals. Thus, Just Turns was born! 

The Turn Doctor

Ikolo has been teaching Just Turns for the last 11 years and results he gets, from the over 500 workshop he has given are why he is commonly known as the "Turn Doctor"
