Ballet Positions
Toddler first position
Tracy Wicklund
It's never too early to start learning the five basic positions of ballet. Your little one may be able to place her feet into first and second position, but don't expect too much more just yet. Little feet are difficult to place.

Grab a small chair for your child to grasp. Start with first position: Place your child's heels together and turn out her toes. See how long she can hold the position. As she gets older and gains more control of her feet, move on to other positions. Pretty soon she'll have all five!
