Ballet Techniques Video

Ballet training places great emphasis on ballet technique because precise technique is an essential element of the aesthetics of ballet performance. Ballet technique is drilled into ballet students to develop the desired aesthetics and to prevent injury. For example, students are taught to avoid sickling of the foot, which is an undesirable aesthetic and can result in ankle injuries when performing en pointe.
The ballet barre is a tool for learning ballet technique. Barre work typically involves all elements of ballet technique except for the elements that are exclusive to jumps and turns.

Petit allegro (meaning ‘small and fast) movements comprise small jumps and fast, detailed footwork.
Grand allegro (meaning ‘big and fast’) movements comprise technically challenging movements such as large jumps and leaps.
