If you really want to know more about the mechanics of ballet, here are some videos to get you started. The first video is very basic, covering the five potions that all ballet dancers learn when they begin to dance.
Next is the first of a series of videos displaying many of the most common ballet positions and moves. Even if you don’t dance, you’ll still enjoy knowing these moves when you see them in ballet performances.
Remember, it takes a lot of work to make those graceful ballet moves look so effortless. Ballet dancers work as hard, if not harder, than many athletes; some fans of ballet even think it should be classified as more of a sport than an art form.
