Start with the basics

ballet positionsHey all!

Today’s post is the first of many to come in the “Ballet 101” category. These posts are meant to give some basics in ballet. One of the most important things in ballet is learning to start simple and then build on things that you have already solidified; that will help you avoid injury and give you understanding of more complex movements down the road.

I found this fabulous picture of 1st-5th position with a description of each; take a look and give them a try! Remember to try and keep most of your weight on the balls of your feet. But most of all, have fun!
