A Couple Little Dances for Us to Practice

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.

I’m glad you were able to come back to visit.

I found a nice video of young dancers that I thought you would like.

There are a couple dances on this video – one is ballet and the other is tap.  These girls are very good dancers!

(You might want to bookmark this video so you can practice a little bit of each dance at a time.)

After I practice with the video, I’m going to color the picture.  You can, too.  Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.

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

I hope you’ll come back next week.  See you then!

Let’s Practice a Combination!

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.

Today we’re going to learn an adagio combination.

Do you remember what “adagio” means?  If not, go to Vance’s Ballet Dictionary.

The easiest way to learn this combination I think, is to watch the video below and try to imitate the ballet instructor’s movements.   And then practice, practice, practice!

After I practice these adagio steps, I’m going to color the picture below.  Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.  Don;t forget to say “please” and “thank you”.

Please come back next week when we’ll learn more ballet steps and combinations.

What is a “Combination”?

 

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

I’m so glad you stopped in to visit.

Today we’re going to talk about what a “combination” would be in ballet.

Below is an explanation of this word from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary.

“A series of steps linked together, usually as an exercise in class.”

I found a video of just such an exercise that might be used in our classes.

 Oh dear, I’m afraid that’s a little bit too difficult for me.  Isn’t she wonderful, though?

Someday I hope to make my own video of a combination of dance steps like JasmineDancer’s.

After I practice ballet, I’m going to color this picture.

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

I know you remembered to say “please” and “thank you”, didn’t you?
