How to Do the Switch Firebird leap in ballet
In this video, we learn how to do the switch firebird. Start with a chasse on the left foot, taking three steps. From there, take one more step with the right foot, then brush the left foot forward. Take a nice big plea in the right leg, then brush it back and jump off the ground jumping into attitude and hitting the top of the head. Get as high as you can turned out. Use the plea to help you jump off the ground. Practice these in individual counts, then practice in one fluid movement in front of a mirror so you can see what you are doing right and wrong!
