Clockwise and Counterclockwise

Make sure you know which direction to turn! Choreographers specify if turns should be en dehors (clockwise) or en dedans (counterclockwise).

en dehors - outwardly - is a pirouette turning away from the the supporting leg - it can be clockwise or counter clockwise depending on which leg you are standing on

therefore, a pirouette en dedans - inwardly - must turn towards the supporing leg.
