Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to practice the ballet step called “battement tendu” (baht-mahn – tahn-dew).
Here is a picture of students practicing battement tendus:
This video might help you to understand what a battement looks like when a dancer is practicing:
I think we’ve used this video before but it is a good explanation of how to do a battement properly.
Now, you try it. It’s a bit harder than it looks, isn’t it?
I found a picture for you to color. Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.
I’m going to go practice the battement tendu.
Please come back next week when we’ll talk about some more ballet steps and poses.
