I have a question about ballet…?

Question by Hey: I have a question about ballet…?
I currently am taking a classical ballet class. I was wondering the order of the steps. For example, we always start with pila then tondues, etc. I was wondering what the complete order is supposed to be. I am going to teach a class tomorrow so I want to know the order.
I was also wondering if you knew any good stretches for your ankles and feet and core.

Thank you very much 🙂

Every teacher’s barre is different, so there really is no “correct order”. You may want to look at David Howard’s barre. He has several videos out. His barre is great.
For ankles and feet you can do releves and eleves. Pointe and flex your feet. Write the alphabet with your feet. Core takes time to build up, but anything that works your mid section and abs like crunches.
