Boots Posted October 4, 2002 Report Share Posted October 4, 2002 (I'm not sure if this should go on the adult student board, or the adult buddy board, so if moderators want to move this, please do!) I'm curious - what are everyone's favorite steps in ballet? My personal favorites are: 1) balancé / pas de valse (especially en tournant! ) Maybe this says something about being a hopeless romantic... I just love carving my arms through space and really moving across the floor. 2) one of my teachers sometimes uses a failli/assemblé combo at the beginning of grand allegro. I love it because, again, you're really moving across the floor. 3) I'm developing a definite like for sissone. When I first tried this step I HATED it. The first time I had to do it was when I first started taking advanced beginner and low-intermediate classes. It totally confounded me for some reason at first and I developed a sissone anxiety. But now I really like them. 4) glissade - simple, but fun. And you know something good is coming next! 4) The good 'ol tombe, pas de bourrée, glissade, grand jeté (or saut de chat/grand jeté developé). It's fun and it feels great when you do it right. Anyone else?? Quote Link to comment
