21 Dogs Doing Their Best Ballerina Impressions
You’re all dressed and ready to go, so let’s begin.
Don’t forget your leg warmers.
Let’s start in first position.
Tendu, and back. Again, please.
You can use the barre for support if you need to.
Now third position, please. Turn your paws out a little more.
Let’s see an arabesque.
Good morning! Stretchy stretchy! Chilli doing her morning #arabesque stretch to wake up.. Doesn't she have nice #pointedtoes (or should I say #pointedpaws ?) #chihuahuasofinstagram #chihuahua #chilove #balletdog #chilife #doglife #fuzzybut #dancingdog #ecoledepole #poledancerdogs #mclucasmafia #dogyoga #yogadog
Ecarté devant! Well, close enough.
And grand jeté!
Back to third.
Everyone is just nailing those arabesques today.
Harvey's Guide to a Perfect Puppy Arabesque: 1. Stabilize your weight on three of your four legs. 2. Lift one back leg exactly 90 degrees. 3. (and this is the secret tip) Use your tail as an extra stabilizer by putting it at a 90 degree angle to your lifted leg. Tres bon! September Photo-A-Day Challenge, Day 7: FUNNY
Now for your pas de deux.
Just try not to smother your partner.
And straddle jump for the finale!
Good work everyone!
Be sure to congratulate each other on your hard work.
