Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dance position is a position of a dancer or a mutual position of a dance couple assumed during a dance. Describing and mastering proper dance positions is an important part of dance technique. In ballet, the term pose is used to describe stationary dance positions; the most important are referred to as "First position" through to "Fifth position" - these are described in the glossary of ballet terms. Dance positions of a single dancer may be further detailed into body, head, arm, hand, leg, and foot positions.Dance positions in a dance couple additionally take into an account connection, relative orientation of partners, and directions of movement (or of movement intention).show more
