Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today, we’re going to learn about a ballet step called “developpé”.
A developpé is a movement in which the working leg is drawn up to the knee of the supporting leg and from there smoothly out to a position in the air.
Here is a picture of a dancer completing a developpé into second position.
Of course, a person (or mouse) would have to be pretty strong to get her leg that high!
I found a video that shows how to do this step.
These girls are doing a developpé to second position and to the arabesque position. Did you recognize the positions?
Here is a picture for you to color:
Ask your mom or dad to print out the picture for you. I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”.
Please come back next week. We’ll talk about some more ballet steps.
See you soon.
