Ballet part Deux

Ballet II started three weeks ago and our little ballerina was so excited. We kept all of the handouts she received from Ballet I so she could practice. They are taped to the wall and she and little sis love to play ballerina by imitating the poses captured on the handouts. The latest move they are both practicing is an arabesque - which means you stand gracefully on one leg and raise the other behind you with toe pointed, then arms are placed either out to the side or in a circle in front of the body. The girls are getting so good at balancing! The videos capture the little ballerina in action. The class was working on some bar skills as well as some fancy sashaying across the dance floor. Enjoy!
