Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to practice the ballet step called “bourrée” (boo-ray).
We will begin in fifth position…
Remember what that word means?
It means to rise up onto the ball of your foot or, if you’re wearing pointe shoes, to rise up onto the ends of your toes.
Now that you are standing on the balls of your feet, move the front foot forward a little bit then slide your back foot close to your front one. Keep taking these little steps forward.
This step can also be performed moving backwards and to either side.
Look at this video so you’ll understand this step better:
I found another picture for us 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 my bourrées.
See you next week!
