Hi, my name is Ella. I'm a ballerina and tonight is my big performance!
Abduction is the movement of a limb away from the body. Pronation is the rotation of the hands or feet so they face upward, as opposed to supination which rotates them down. Lastly, the movement in which the sole of your foot rotates toward the mid-line is known as inversion.
Ella, you need to make sure to abduct and pronate your right arm to grab the bar while inversing your right leg to feel the stretch.
Your hand is in a supinate position unlike mine.
Flexion is the bending of a limb or joint. The movement of a limb towards the body's mid-line is called adduction. Eversion, the opposite of inversion, is the movement in which the sole of the foot rotates away from the center of the body.
I begin the recital by flexing my right arm and adducting my left arm. I then evert my feet away from my mid-line into third position.
Depression is the lowering of the body by joints without movement in any other direction. A limb rotates when the bone pivots or revolves around a single axis.
Next I rotate my hips away from my mid-line and depress into first position to complete a saute and demi-plie
Circumduction occurs when the distal part of a limb moves in a circular motion while the proximal end remains fixed. Opposite from flexion, extension occurs when a limb moves from a bent position to a straight position.
Then I do a split leap into the air by extending my arms and legs while circumducting my left arm.
Elevation occurs when the joint raises the body upwards, rather than outwards or any other direction. The End
After landing the split leap, I elevate on my toes and pirouette and complete my recital.
