Let’s Review the Fondu

Millicent

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

Today we’re going to practice the ballet step called “fondu”.

Below is the definition of this ballet step from Vance’s Fantastic Ballet Dictionary:

“Any movement that lowers the body by bending one leg. In a plié, both legs support the body; in a fondu, only one leg supports the body.”

I found a video of this step so that we can follow the ballet student and practice the step along with her.

Please click on the link below to open the video.

After I practice the fondu, I’m going to color this ballet picture:

images, arabesque with curly cues corrected

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.  We’ll practice more ballet steps.

See you then.
