How to Ballet

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your back straight and your chest lifted throughout the exercise.

2. Don't let your knees extend past your toes when you plié.

3. Make sure to land softly and avoid putting too much weight on your toes.

Proper Form

1. Begin by doing a plié, bending your knees and lowering your body, keeping your feet in first position.

2. Rise up and bend your knees again, extending your arms out to the side.

3. Push off the ground with your feet, jumping into the air and bringing your feet together in the air.

4. Land back down, bringing your feet back into first position.

Breathing Technique

1. Take a deep breath before beginning the exercise.

2. As you lower your body into a plié, exhale.

3. As you rise and extend your arms, inhale.

4. As you jump, exhale.

5. As you land, inhale.


1. Stand with feet together, arms in a relaxed position by your sides.
