Depends on the grade. In my class we do our portabra, a tonlea exercise, two piriotes, and our jumps. And when we come back from out Christmas break we start character.

    There are numerous variations of this, but this is how my studio do it

    tendu
    adagio
    turns from corner
    petite allegro
    grand allegro

    im not sure what center practice is but if it includes jumps dont do before petite and grand allegro
    if it has to do with turns like fouttes do after turns from corner.

    In my style, Vaganova, the order is as follows

    -tendus
    -turns from corner
    -adagio
    -petite allegro
    -turns – fouttes, or tour poises
    -grand allegro

    Hope this helps
    Good luck on your test!!
