How To Do A Pas De Chat
When Rhiann stands with arms through first into third, she is going to look
So now, I'm going to show you Pas De Chat. Pas De Chat is an allegro step. It actually means "dance of the cat". So, here we go. Come to the bar. Firstly, Rhiann is going to put herself in fifth position and then she's going to do retire, up the back of her leg. We're just going to place it there behind the knee and then she's going to do a little step into second and bring the other leg in front of the knee just below and then close in fifth. We'll do that again just to make sure we've got. It goes up to the back of the knee, just to here and then step and just under the knee at the front and close. Okay. So now, we'll show it the other way around so that you can see the front of her body and what it looks like from this direction. She's going to do retire up to the back and a little step and then up to the front of her knee and down. Okay. That's lovely. Thank you, Rhiann. Alright, so now, we're going to turn around and face the bar again and this time, we're going to do it with a little pique. We're going to do Danny Pique. One and retire two, little step, in front of the knee and close and stretch, up and step and up and Danny Pique and stretch. Beautiful! So now, progressing on from that, let's try it with a little jump. So, we'll just face the bar again and this time around, we're going to push off from the left foot so as she lifts up, she's going to do a Danny Pique and as she lifts the back foot, she's going to spring off the left foot and stretch. Danny Pique and point and spring and stretch. Once you've mastered that, you can try it in the center together with your arms. So Rhiann, if you'd like to stand in fifth position, we're going to prepare the arms through first into third as she's just going to look over the top of her arm and then she's going to try her Pas De Chat going sideways piquet, Pas De Chat and stretch and again pique, Pas De Chat and stretch and finish.
