Let’s Review the Dégagé

 Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

I’m happy to see you again.

Today we’re going to review the ballet step called “dégagé”.

A “dégagé is a movement or a step in ballet in which the working foot is lifted off the floor.

Below is a picture of three people performing a dégagé at the barre.

I think this video of a ballet student practicing dégagés to the front, side, back and side again might help you better understand how the step is performed.

Now,  you try it.

I found a picture for us to color after we practice our dégagés .  Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.  Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.

I hope you’ll come back next week.

 See you then.
