Ballet classes are a way of life for every dancer and even the most experienced ballerinas will still commit to a ballet class.

The exercises in a ballet class will remain the same format for each class, starting with plies at the barre and finishing with grand battement. Then moving onto port de bras, tendus and pirouettes in the center work.

Your ballet teachers will associate the steps in your class with ballet terms and it comes in very useful for you to be familiar with these ballet terms.

Discover the meanings to all those terms in your ballet class -

For dancers, there is always time to learn and improve. So, familiarize yourself with the ballet terms and have a greater understanding to your steps in your next ballet class.

Best wishes,


P.S - The quote of the day is: “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere."
