Product Description

2-Disc Set. No synopsis available.

From the Back Cover

If your dream is to float across a stage like a ballerina - or you just want to explore the art of ballet - this is where it all begins! Join Chloe, a delightful young girl with hopes of becoming a dancer, as she takes her first steps in this breathtaking art form. The effortless grace of ballet is firmly based on a centuries-old language of basic movements and body positions. Enter an actual dance studio and watch as Chloe is introduces to these "Basic Positions and Movements". First come principle positions of the hands, feet, legs and head, followed by essential movements such as the plier (bending), relever (rising) and sauter (jumping). Fundamental dirctions of the body are also demonstrated, as are the four positions of one of ballet's most recognizable and beautiful figures: the arabesque. After learning the basics, Chloe has a magical encounter with a ballerina who introduces exercises which every dancer relies on to warm up the body and build strength and technique; these include degages, ronds de jambs, releves and more. Then it's on to learn how to turn, jump and combine steps to create a beautiful dance combination. Featuring magnificent archive footage of dancers past and present, along with graceful demonstrations by ballerina Veronique Saouter, this is a wonderful visual guide to the fundamentals and history of a glorious art.
