In this lesson you will learn about Adagio. Adagio is one of the key elements of classical exercise, allowing a dancer to build strength, endurance and self-confidence.
We’ve already done demi-rond and rond par terre with you.
In adagio these rond are done at a 90 degree angle hight or higher. Demi-rond is done through battement developé.
Stand in fifth position. Working leg goes through passé. Knee is opened. This is a passing movement, done without pausing. Then the leg unbends with toes pointing to the front. In a turn out position draw a circle in the air.
