Happy New Year!

Millicent

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

2013_kids_350

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?

I have.   Here they are:

1. I’m going to do my chores and not complain.

2. I’m going to practice my ballet every day and try to remember my teacher’s instructions.

3.  I’m going to be nicer to my brother, Mortimer.  (oh, boy, this one’s going to be hard!)

If you’re kinda bored now that Christmas is over, below is a New Year’s picture for you to color:

Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.”

Below is a video of the Sleeping Beauty ballet.

I hope you enjoy it.

I’ll be back next week.  Will you?

We’ll practice more ballet then.  Won’t that be fun?

Let’s Dance!

Millicent

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

I’m glad you came back to dance with me.

Here’s a video lesson on how to do the ballet step called “chassé” for us to practice along with this week.

This is the definition of the step from Vance’s Fantastic Ballet Dictionary:

“A gliding step. The working leg slides out; put weight on working leg and draw other leg along floor to it. (In American folk dancing, this word was mispronounced, giving rise to the term “sashay.”)”

Please click on the link below:

After I practice the  chassé, I’m going to color the ballet picture below.

Ask your mom or dad to print it out for you.  Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.”

I hope you’ll come back next week when we’ll practice more ballet together.

See you then.

More Ballet to Practice

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.

I’m glad you came back to visit and learn.

Today we have a video of simple exercises at the barre that we can practice every day.

I’m going to look at the video a couple times and then try the exercises myself.

Make sure you have something good and sturdy to hang onto when practicing barre work!

After I practice the barre exercises, I’m going to color this picture:

Ask your mom or dad to print out the picture for you.

Don’t forget to say ‘please” and “thank you”.

You can subscribe to my blog if you’d like and your mom and dad say it’s okay. Just fill in the form at the bottom of this page with your email address.  Then you will always know when a new post has been published!

I hope you’ll come back next week so we can practice more ballet together.
