Hi! Welcome back to my blog.
Today we’re going to learn about the ballet step called “retiré”.
Below is the definition of this step from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:
“A position in which the working foot is drawn up to the knee of the supporting leg. Also frequently (and incorrectly) called passé.”
I found a video of a ballet instructor teaching how to do a retiré.
Watch it a couple times and try to do what the student on the video is doing.
Please click on the link to see this video:
After I practice the retiré, I’m going to color the ballet picture below.
Maybe you can, too but ask your mom or dad first.
I hope you will come back next week when we’ll talk about more ballet steps.
See you then!
