What is “Adage” in Ballet?

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

For the next couple blogs we will be learning some ballet terms.

 

Today’s term is “adage” (ah-dazj).

 

This is the definition from the wonderful website, http://www.theatredance.com/balletterm1.html:

 

“adage [Italian adagio: “at ease”]. The second part of a ballet class: slow work with emphasis on sustained positions and on balance.”

 

Click on the video below to watch a men’s class performing the adagio part of their ballet class:

 

 

My brother Mortimer thinks he dances just like them.  I don’t think so!

 

I found another picture for you to color.  Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.

 

I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank  you”.

 

Please come back next week.  We’ll be learning another ballet term.

 

See you then. 

 

 

xoxoxo,
