Let’s Practice the Arabesque


Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

Today we’re going to practice the ballet step called arabesque.

Below is the definition of the arabesque from Vance’s Fantastic Ballet Dictionary:

“A pose with one leg stretched straight out to the back and one arm usually stretched out to the front. The back leg may be on the floor or at 45, 90, or 135 degrees. (These angles are measured from the vertical; 90 degrees means parallel to the floor.)”

I found a video with a ballet teacher who explains and demonstrates how to do an arabesque properly.

Please click on the link below to open the video.


After I practice my arabesque, I’m going to color this ballet picture…


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 steps.

See you then!
