Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to learn how to do a glissade (glee-sahd).
Below is the definition from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:
“A connecting step. Start in plié; move the right foot out to pointe tendu; then move onto that leg, closing the left foot and landing in plié. Can be done in any direction.”
Here is a photo of a dancer beginning a glissade.
I found a video of a student demonstrating a glissade.
(Mom/Dad, there is a movie preview before the ballet video that you might want to skip)
I’m going to practice glissades. After that, I’m going to color a ballet picture. You can, too.
Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you. Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.
You can subscribe to my blog if you’d like so you’ll get each new post in your email inbox. If your mom or dad say it’s okay, click on the link at the top of the right hand column and enter your email address.
I hope you’ll come back next week.
See you then.
