Beginner pointe variation - Paquita

This was a video I made for a Facebook group of dancers who wanted to learn a variation on pointe! I teach this to my beginner pointe dancers, or intermediate flat dancers. It's very cute and fun to dance, and doesn't take up too much space.


There are lots of ways you can modify this variation, including toe hops for the arabesque, a relevé break at the ankle in plié for the attitude, multiple turns for the turn sequence, or to hops at the end. Have fun with it!
