  1. This dance mom’s been paying attention when her daughter talks – 100%!! 🙂

    • Awesome! She will be proud! 🙂

    • There are actually 6 positions in ballet.
      6th position is when your feet are parallel to each other.

      • that position isn’t actually a position. some studios will call it that to their littles, or reference it in pointe. put it is not a very high term.

  2. I got 9 out of 10 but the question I got wrong #9 isn’t accurate. Pique, Passe, Chaines, & Fouette are all types of turns so there is no correct answer.

    • A passe is not a turn. Yes it is a dance movement, but not a turn. And there is 6 positions (6th being parallel)

      • There are only five in classical ballet. In other words, you will NEVER see a ballet dancer with turned in legs is any classical ballet pieces. The sixth position or the parallel position is often used in contemporary dance/breaking in pointe shoes.

  3. I got 10 out of 10. My teacher would be proud!

  4. Parallel is considered a position, but it is not a classical ballet position like the question stated.

  5. I have never heard parallel as 6th position before. I have only been taught up to with and i am on pointe. At my dance school we call it parallel not 6th positions which I must argue.
