How To Dance Ballet
Posted by Ballet Info on Sep 3, 2012 in Questions | 4 comments
Could you please try and explain the five positions of ballet to me? Are there any basics that I should know before I enter my ballet class?
I would suggest looking up feet positions up on line. Also look up ballet terms and memorize the terms with the positions and steps.
First position: heels together, toes pointed out sideways forming a wide V
Second position: feet spread about the length of one foot apart to the sides, same turnout as first
Third position: same turnout as first position, one heel places in the arch of the other.
Fourth position: from third,bring front leg directly forward a little less than a foot
Fifth position: from third, bring heel of front foot to toe of the other foot
Hope that this helps.
