They then go to the barre and learn the basic ballet positions. After accomplishing what is needed to develop their legs and feet they leave the barre with a happy jumping song. They work on ballet skips, gallops, chaîné turns, ballet arms across the floor and in the center of the room. Next it is time to get down and change into our tap shoes.
