Let’s Practice the Glissade


Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

I’m glad you came back to practice ballet with me.

Today we’re going to learn about the ballet step, the glissade.

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

“A connecting step. Start in plié; move the right foot out to pointe tendu; then move onto that leg, closing the left foot and landing in plié. Can be done in any direction.”

I found a video that explains how this step should be performed.  Please click on the link to open the video so you can practice along.


After I practice this step for awhile, I’m going to color the dance picture.


Ask your mom or dad if you can too.  They may need to help you print it out.  Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.”

I hope you’ll come back next week to practice more ballet with me.

See you then.
