What is the proper way to pivot?

Learning to Pivot Properly

You begin with the feet shoulder width apart. Start with the right foot as the pivot foot. Put all of your weight on the ball of the right foot. Now shift your weight to the left foot. Move your right foot forward making a circle around the left foot and swivel on the ball of the left foot. Make three turns each time. Now do the same thing moving backward. Do this exercise slowly and get a feel for the movement. Switch pivot feet using your left foot. Repeat this drill by doing 10 pivots for each foot.
