One of my teens asked if we could do something fun for her birthday during class.  I decided to do a center barre class to popular music.  Thought I'd share a couple of the combinations in case anyone else might want to do this.

Plie' Combination

Eyes Open by Taylor Swift from the Hunger Games

Hold until the percussion kicks in

2 Demi plie' (2 cts down and 2 cts up)

2 Grand plie' (4 cts down and 4 cts up)

2 Eleve' (2 cts up and 2 cts down)

1st and 2nd en face

5th facing croisee'

4th the combination changes to

2 Demi plie' (2 cts down and 2 cts up)

2 Eleve' (2 cts up and 2 cts down)

Port de bras front, roll up through the spine, cambre' back and recover (4 cts per section)

Repeat to the 2nd side.

 

Tendu / Degage' Combination from 5th

How to Save A Life by The Fray from the Gray's Anatomy Soundtrack

4 Tendu front in small pose croise' (1 ct out, 1 ct in) 

Temps lie' to the front (large pose) and close (4 cts)

Temps lie' to the back (large pose) and close (4cts)

4 Tendu side in a la seconde

Temps lie' to the side and close

Temps lie to the other side and close facing the new corner

4 Tendu back in croise'

Temps lie' to the back

Temps lie' to the front

4 Tendus to the side

Finish facing so that the original starting leg is in effacee front

Arms are in small pose

Front

Repeat

Back - repeat the same 2 sets in effacee' back (this is the opposite leg)

Front foot repeats the same 2 sets to the side in ecarte' back

Back foot repeats 1 set of the combination in ecarte' front

Back foot repeats the 2nd set of the combination in a la seconde finishing facing in effacee front on the 2nd side
