Let’s Practice the Changement


Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.


Today we’re going to learn about the ballet step, changement.

The word “changement” meand a “change of the feet”.


Vance’s Fantastic Ballet Dictionary defines the changement this way,


“A jump, straight up, starting from fifth position with one foot in front and landing in fifth position with the other foot in front.”


Below is a picture of a dancer doing a changement:

Now you try it.  Don’t step on  your toes!


I’m going to go practice the changement.  When I’m finished, I’m going to color the picture below.

Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.


 I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”.


Two links with information for mom and dad: 





You can subscribe to my blog if you’d like and your mom and dad say it’s okay.  Just click on the “subscribe” button in the right-hand column near the top of the page and fill out the form.  You’ll get each new blog post right in your email inbox.


I hope you’ll come back next week when we will learn a new ballet step. 

See you then.
