What is a Releve?

Welcome to my blog!

Today we’re going to talk about a releve (rel-e-vay).

To “releve” means to “rise up” either on the ball of one foot or both feet or on the end of your toes if you are wearing pointe shoes.

Here is a picture of a dancer doing a releve on the balls of her feet:

 

Below is a picture of a ballerina standing on the tips of her toes in pointe shoes.

Here is a picture for you to color.  Ask your mom or dad to print out the picture for you.  Don’t forget to say “thank you”.

 

 

I hope you’ll come back next week.  We’ll learn about port de bras (por-de-braws)

xoxoxo,
