A couple of days ago I wrote about the five ballet feet positions. Now here are the ballet arm positions demonstrated by Romany Pajdak, First Artist of the Royal Opera House.
Ballet Arm Positions
Ballet uses strictly defined positions through which most arm movements travel. There are five basic positions: first, second, third, fourth, fifth.
Thanks to the Royal Opera House for uploading this video to YouTube.
This video of ballet arm positions is a wonderful visual aide for beginners. Teachers of first year students will find it useful too.
