Let’s Practice a Sissone!

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.

Today we’re going to learn about the ballet movement called “sissone”.

Below is the definition of “sissone” as given in Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:

“In sissonne simple, the most elementary form, the movement begins in 5th position. Jump straight up, with the legs together and the feet pointed. Land on one foot in demi-plié, with the other foot sur le cou-de-pied either in front or back (corresponding to whether the foot sur le cou-de-pied began in front or back–it does not change).”

I found a video that shows how to perform the sissone.

That man sure is a wonderful dancer, isn’t he?

After I practice the sissone, I’m going to sit down and color the picture below:


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 about more ballet steps.

See you then!
