    For Parents Does anyone else have this problem?

    My dd uses her right leg for handstands and walkovers, but uses her left leg for cartwheels, roundoffs, and turns. Is this something that needs to be worked around for?

    My daughter is working on full turns on beam. According to what she told me, her foot barely moves when turning.
