Let’s Review the Relevé

Millicent

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.

It’s nice to see you.

Today we’re going to talk about the ballet step, relevé.

Below is the definition of this word from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:

“A movement in which the heels are raised off the floor. The rise may be smooth or aided by a slight spring, depending on the school. A dancer in such a position is said to be ‘in relevé‘.”

Please check out the video in which a ballet teacher demonstrates this step.

Ask your mom or dad if you can color the picture below when you’re finished practicing the relevé.

It will need to be printed out so ask someone to help you and don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.”

I hope you’ll come back next week to learn more about ballet.  See you then.

xoxoxo,
