Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday.
Today we’re going to learn about the ballet term “fondu”.
Below is the definition of fondu from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:
“Any movement that lowers the body by bending one leg. In a plié, both legs support the body; in a fondu, only one leg supports the body.”
Maybe it would help to see a picture of a dancer performing a fondu. Look at the students below.
Does that help you to understand fondu better?
I found a video that explains this movement very well. Click on the link to open the video.
Now, you try it. It isn’t so hard, is it?
Below is a picture for us to color after we finish practicing the fondu. Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.
I hope you’ll come back next week when we’ll learn more ballet steps.
See you then.
