4 WEEK BALLET EXPERIENCE
We continue today to work through our barre exercises for week 3 and our NUTCRACKER dance.
Duration: 33 minutes
- Warm Up
- Pliés: The focus is not only on a well executed plié in first and second position, but also on getting the feet to articulate and working through the feet.
- Tendu: We continue working on articulating the feet and working them in our tendus. And we do weight transfers in forth and second position.
- Rond de Jambe: meaning ’round the leg’. This is a new step, and we try these with the toe on the floor, and the toe off the floor.
- Grand Battements & Spring Points: these are our big kicks to the front, side and back. And we Spring Point facing the barre. A Spring Point is a hop on one foot with the other leg in a tendu position.
- Port de Bras: we work through all the arm positions.
- Nutcracker Dance: we revise the entire dance.
