Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

Today we’re going to learn about the ballet step called “Échappé”.

An Échappé is a step in which you move your feet from first or fifth position to second position with a little jump.  Then close your feet back into first or fifth position.

Have a great week!  Don’t forget to keep practicing your ballet steps.  ‘Bye for now.
