Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to talk about the second position for arms and feet.
Here is a girl standing in second position:
Her arms are in second position, too. See how they’re stretched out to the side?
She has toe shoes on, did you notice? I can’t wait until I can dance en pointe!
Here’s a video of children trying out to perform with the London Children’s Ballet Company. I think I would be really scared but it would be fun to dance in front of so many people.
Here’s a picture of little ballet dancers holding their arms in second position. Do you know what position their feet are in? Scroll down to last week’s post to find out.
I found another picture for you to color. Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you. And don’t forget to say “thank you”.
Wow, she can jump so high!
Please come back next week. We are going to talk some more about the foot and arm positions in ballet.
Welcome back to my blog!
Today we’re going to learn about the first position in ballet class.
Arms and feet have different positions that every dancer must learn.
Here is a picture of a dancer with her feet in first position:
Her heels are close together and her toes are pointed out. See?
There is also a first position for arms. Here is a picture of a girl holding her arms in first position:
Her arms are curved but not bent and her fingers almost touch in front of her chest.
Here is a video for you to watch:
Ask your mom or dad to print out this picture for you so you can color it (don’t forget to say “thank you”)
