Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to learn how to do a grand battement.
You can tell from the name of this ballet step what the step looks like, can’t you?
The French word “grand” means “big” and the word “battement” means to extend and return (or “beat”) the leg so this step will involve a kick of the leg.
Here is a picture of a dancer performing a grand battement:
Wow! She is really good, isn’t she?
Below is a video of a student practicing her grand battement. I hope you enjoy it.
I’m going to go practice my grand battement now.
After I practice, I’m going to color the picture I found. Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you so you can color the picture too.
I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”.
See you next week when we’ll talk about more ballet steps.
