Beginer Foot Warmup

Here is a nice simple foot warmup for students. It is a bit long and has several parts, but is fairly easy to remember, and slow enough to follow along if they forget. It focuses on simple articulation and eleves. This is also great to do for beginner pointe students while wearing their pointe shoes!


This exercise is featured in my pre-pointe barre! See the rest here, or search by other pre-pointe exercises.
