Beginner Class 22nd September '07


As promised, here's a review of what we did during the first lesson. As homework for the next few weeks, tag some examples of youtube dance links which show how "ballet fingers" should look =P. Different companies use different "fingers"...we will be using the general RAD fingers..the ones shown in the "Position of the arms link" I gave are not suitable for this class hehe...so all the best on your search!

1. Correct posture in ballet
2. Positions of the arms (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, demi seconde, demi bras) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_Mn2SRawAs
3. Positions of the feet (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th)
