What Does “Allegro” Mean?

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

Today we’re going to talk about the term “allegro” (ah-leh-groh) as it is used in ballet.

Allegro means “fast”.   It is the third part of ballet class.

This is the time when ballet students practice fast turns and big and small jumps.  My brother, Mortimer, loves this part of the class.  He is such a show off!!

Below is a video of older girls in a ballet class practicing the allegro portion of their class.

After you finish practicing your steps ask your mom or dad to print out the picture below for you.

I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”.

 I’ll be back next week with more ballet terms and steps.  I hope you’ll come back to visit.

See you soon.
