Ballet: Five basic leg Position  

Wanna learn ballet again? I would be starting off with some simple ballet positions and the venturing into the world of ballet terminology. happy learning!!!

got this from http://www.dance.net/read.html?postid=3112760&page=1


1st Position: Heels together, 180 degree. The feet almost form one line. (This is varied for beginners.)



2nd Position: The feet still form one line but with a space of 1 1/2 individual's foot between the heels.



3rd Position: Not very common in classical ballet. One foot in front of the other. The front heel is in midpoint of the back foot.



4th Position:Same as the 5th position with a space of one individual's foot between the feet.



5th Position:One foot in front of the other as the 3rd position, but crossed further. The heel of the front foot touches the big toe of the back foot


* 6th Position: Not very commonly used, this position is described best as feet together, making two parallel lines.*
