Do You Know How to Do Chaîné Turns?

Hi!  Welcome back to my blog.

Millicent

Today we’re going to learn how to do chaîné turns.

Below is the definition of these turns from Vance’s Ballet Dictionary:

“Short for tours chaînées déboulés, “chained, rolling turns.” Fast turns on half or full point with the legs in a tight first position, rotating a half turn on one foot and the other half on the other foot. Done one after the other so they’re “chained” together.”

After I practice the turns, I’m going to color the ballet picture.  Ask your mom or dad if you can print out the picture and color it.
Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.”

I hope you’ll come back next week when we’ll learn and practice more ballet steps.

See you then!
