Hi, my name is Linda Giancaspro and this is how to become a better ballet dancer. A ballet dancer's body is a true instrument to perfectly orchestrated steps and movements. A ballet dancer's mind will focus and concentrate strictly on here movement and making the positions happen. Conditioning the body on how to become a better ballet dancer simply requires formal training and a desire to achieve. The ballet dancer's posture gives her easy access to perfectly held positions. First off we tuck in the lowest stomach muscle. The hips remain under the upper body very flat. The ballet's dancer's leg in a turned out position will be turned from the top of the hip all the way down the knee through the ankle and into the toes. So the leg will go sideways as opposed to being straight up. The ballet dancer's leg will be turned out also when the legs are together, turned out from the top of the hip through the knee down to the ankle and into the toe as opposed to being straight. Here's the flexibility with turnout in the back and the ballet dancer will do her best to lengthen her back along her thighs. With the legs in a turned out position begin beating from the thigh opening the thigh and beating the legs in a flexed foot. Now slowly lowering the legs while the toes are pointed and flex bring them up. Thanks for watching hope these tips helped.
