What Does “Balancé” Mean?

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

This week we’re going to  talk about the ballet term “balancé” (bah-lahn-say).

The word itself means to “rock” or “to swing”.

There are several ways a dancer can rock or swing, of course, as long as the movement is graceful!


Below is a video of dancers using a balancé combined with pirouettes: 

I found another picture for us to color.  I hope you like it.

Please click on the link below to open the picture.

Then ask your mom or dad to print it out for you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.


Please come back next week when we’ll learn another ballet term or step.  See you then.
