Let’s Practice a sur le Cou de Pieds


Hi! Welcome back to my blog.


Today we’re going to learn how to do a sur le cou de pieds (suhr-leh-koo-deh-pehay).   That’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?


You start with one foot on the “neck” of the other so that your foot is wrapped around the ankle.  Then you push your working foot out to the front, side or back with your toes pointed.   Put your heel down on the floor and then slide your working foot back into position.


This is a bit complicated to explain with words.  Check out the video below.  I’m sure you’ll understand this ballet step better when you watch the kids in the video demonstrate the sur le cou de pieds.



Now, you try it.  


I found another picture for you to color.  Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.  Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.


Oops, it’s time to go to ballet class.

  Please come back next week.   In the meantime, don’t forget to practice your sur le cou de pieds.
