What is a Passé Developpé ?


Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

I’m glad to see you again.

Today we’re going to learn about the ballet step called passé developpé.

Below is the definition from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:

“A movement in which the pointed foot of the working leg is made to pass the knee of the supporting leg. Frequently used–incorrectly–as a synonym for retiré.”

Click on the link below to see a video lesson on how to do a passé developpé.


After I practice the passé developpé, I’m going to color a ballet picture.

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