Move 1: Ballet squat moving up an inch, down an inch

Nadine Brandt

1. Start in ballet second position, with your legs about a metre apart and your feet in ‘turn out’ (this is the external rotation of the legs and feet, starting from the hips).

2. Bend your knees and come down in your plié position, making sure that the knees stay above the toes. Keep your back straight and shoulders low.

3. Take the plié one inch down and then one inch up again. Repeat 30 times.
