Working on turnout in ballet often involves engaging and strengthening the gluteus muscles. The gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus are all involved in creating and maintaining turnout, which is the rotation of the legs from the hips outward.

Squeezing the glutes helps to activate and strengthen these muscles, which in turn supports the external rotation of the thighs and helps maintain proper alignment in ballet movements such as pliés, tendus, dégagés, and pirouettes.
