Day 310 - Ballet

For some reason I ended up demonstrating the ballet positions for feet to my two sons. From distant memories of my ballet days (very distant), these are the positions I remembered (correct me if I'm wrong). It was amusing to see Mr 16 and Mr 18 seriously attempt all five positions, but why do people twist their arms out while trying? The top one is first position and the following are second, third, fourth and fifth in that order.


  1. Your shoes have an excellent turnout! I passionately wanted to be a ballerina when I was 10 years old after reading the story of Anna Pavlova. It wasn't to be but I loved doing calisthenics at the local church club.

  2. Lovely set of images - the shoes on the carpet. I think ballet played a part in many little girls' lives. I know it did in mine.

  3. Pam, my shoes are better off without my feet.
    Do you have any photos of yourself doing ballet as a girl, Susan?
