Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
For the next couple blogs we will be learning some ballet terms.
Today’s term is “adage” (ah-dazj).
This is the definition from the wonderful website, http://www.theatredance.com/balletterm1.html:
“adage [Italian adagio: “at ease”]. The second part of a ballet class: slow work with emphasis on sustained positions and on balance.”
Click on the video below to watch a men’s class performing the adagio part of their ballet class:
My brother Mortimer thinks he dances just like them. I don’t think so!
I found another picture for you to color. Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.
I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”.
Please come back next week. We’ll be learning another ballet term.
See you then.
