The first half of the lesson will be spent learning ballet. Pupils will be following the ISTD syllabus and in these sessions will practice first and second position, plié and skipping and galloping. First Position of the feet Possibly the easiest of the basic ballet positions is first position in ballet is a position of the feet where a dancer is standing with their heels together and toes facing equally out to either side. For a beginner, its best just to think of the heels as needing to touch, but for more advanced dancers, no more than 2 inches should be between the heels. Unless in a plié, the legs are straight.

What you’ll need
Dance Uniform is designed to be a safe and practical outfit for your child to dance in. Having a dress code cuts down on distractions in the classroom and allows the teacher to see a dancers alignment and posture in order to make corrections. Wearing a uniform creates a sense of unity and belonging within the studio. Feeling like part of one big dance family creates a sense of pride and is a wonderful way for students to strive to be the best dancer they can be and show support for their peers. When all students are wearing a uniform, it prevents cliques or little groups forming as students feel they are part of one big team rather than smaller friendship circles. For this group we would like the children to wear:-
