Working on your jetés, otherwise known as dégagés at the barre is great for working to improve your ballet technique. Digital Dance Ballet Instructor Elizabeth Quinn Welch teaches you a beginner level jeté/dégagé combination for at the barre. Find out that Elizabeth recommends practicing this beginner level combination with slower music as it will help you or your dancers really focus on alignment, controlling the leg and holding in each position. Go through the jeté/dégagé combination with Elizabeth and see how you do sets of four in each direction. Notice as she holds her leg out for a quick second after her foot leaves the ground. Again, remember to not lean into the barre and keep everything stable when doing this beginner level jeté/dégagé combination.
