Perfect your Attitude! Learn what an attitude is and how to make the most out of this fundamental ballet step for your next Ballet Beautiful workout or ballet class!

Attitude is a classical ballet position where the working leg is lifted in the air to the front (devant), side (a la seconde) or to the back (derrière). The leg in the air is bent in a 90-degree angle and most often turned out so that the knee is higher than the foot.  The supporting leg is straight, on pointe, or demi-pointe.
