    As an example the heart move relies on the shoulders for the reach and precision. The Swan is all about arm definition, nobody will be looking st your legs

    Balance and centering, preparatory to movement.

    The ballet positions simply allow you to start of a ballet move properly. For example, before you do a plié, you have to put your feet in first position. (Heels together; feet turned outward) I don't know if you've heard this or not, but people often say, "ballet has a right and a wrong, no in between." And if you don't start off with the correct position, it's all wrong.
