Just a little reminder of some basic skills

which you can always practice.

 **plié, grand plié, and relevé in each position**

Heel to Toe Marching (this video demonstrates it)

Toe to Heel (slow and fast) (this video demonstrates it)

Passé Jump (this image shows a side view of passé)

Sauté Jump (this video shows a sauté jump in case you forgot)


Flags:

Carving (including around the world)

27 Points in Space

Drop Spins (left and right) (in this video they start form the center but the spin is correct)

Tosses ~ single, single and a half, double (quick video tutorial for tossing)

**all tosses should be done on right AND left

as well as inverted (with the flag up instead of down)


Rifles:
