Of course telling your child to "make like you're humping someone!" works just fine.

To help kids get into that position of staying tall and sticking out the belly button I tell them to "be a banana". Works everytime. They get what you are talking about without having to really tell them what to do.

Sadly, I haven't come up with a good veggie/fruit for heelside. Any ideas??

hhaidar snowolf NAILED IT. Comfortable on the toe edge traversing and skidding to a stop is a must before turning. Teach her to look up, squeeze knees down to toes (pretend ankle strap is an orange and squeeze the juice)., and have her keep her upper body tall (i tell them to push their belly button out so they aren't' breaking at the waist).

Once she has that topside turns get way easier!
