My Ballet Class

  • “Plié!”
    Arms forward, head straight, knees bend,
    1st position, chin up grow and extend.

    Curve arms, bend legs, stick out your chin,
    Spot the wall, hold your breath, jump up and spin.

    “Grand Jetté”!
    Run forwards, speed up, jump off the ground
    Split kick, point your toes, don’t make a sound.

    “Tour en l’Air!”
    5th position, plié, leap, spin and swirl,
    Down again, stay still, end of the whirl.
