In this video, dance expert Deanna McBreaty will demonstrate a tendu combination that is done at the barre. This combination is from fifth position and is for beginner dancers.

You will begin in fifth position at the barre. First, you will do one tendu, then two tendu’s, and then three fondu. You should pause in between each tendu to show the rhythm of the movement.

You should be focusing on accenting in, rather than out. Working on this combination helps teach dancers about timing.
