Sorry it’s been awhile since you’ve gotten any blog updates. Um, nothing to report!
Some of you and I have chatted about the ballet classes I’ve been taking and I thought I would try to take some videos of my self doing a few combinations at home. I can think of at least five people who might enjoy seeing some amateur ballet. 🙂
I’ll try to post a few a day. The first one is a plie combination, usually the first or second combination we do in the beginning of each class. We do it once on each side, or more if we’re performing poorly. 🙂
Fun fact: the little crack you hear at ~ :48 is my hip, ha.
If my teacher were going to give the class this combination, she’d say: from 1st, 2 demis, 1 grande, stretch forward and cambre back. In 2nd stretch in and away from the barre, circular port de bras in 4th, reverse in 5th. Reverse the arm in the grand plie in 2nd and 5th, then rise and balance in sus-sous.
