Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to learn how to do a petit jeté.
Below is the definition of this ballet step from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:
“A jump: brush the working foot out, hop off the supporting leg, and land on the working foot with the other foot sur le cou-de-pied behind. Can be done to the front, the side, or the back.”
This picture shows how the feet should be just before you begin the petit jeté.
Below is a video of a boy performing a petit jeté:
He’s very good, isn’t he?
I’m going to go practice the petit jete now. When I’m finished, I’m going to color the picture.
Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.
Please come back to see me next week when we’ll learn about more ballet steps.
See you then.
