I'm returning to ballet as an adult. What I remember after 30 years is hit-and-miss: sometimes a term will be familiar but I can't remember the movement, or I'll have 2 terms confused. This app lets me look up a term after class and think through the movement. It also helps me to see the term written out. Actual pictures would be great but for a FREE app, this is very helpful.
I got this app to be able to know what certain ballet terms were and how to spell them etc..... This app gives you very detailed information about whatever term you want to know about and the best part is you don’t have to pay for it! Now there are only pictures on a few of them if you’re a big picture person, but other than that a amazing app!
I love this app because it helps improve my technique at home. I am studying he terminology and is making a huge difference. It is helping me to reach my goal. TO BECOME A POINTE DANCER! It's lack of pictures isn't a big issue for me but it would be a nice addition to this already wonderful app! Download it!
I love this app! It helps me understand what each step is and how it's spelled! I highly recommend this app! I love ballet also! But if your not a dancer I suggest another app! The only thing is I wish there were pictures! But other than that I love it!! You should totally get it!!! ❤️💛💚💙💜💃🏻👯
I am a ballerina who struggles to remember names of dance moves. This app is honestly so helpful! I guarantee it will help you remember names on dance moves. Get it while it's free! This app is so awesome that it will most likely will be free for a short time.
I like this app but if you aren't very experienced in knowing how the French language works it's a little hard to find the words you are looking for. I mean you don't have to be fluent but you have to know some ballet. I also love this app because it gives me the literal definition and the full definition . Now I have both to impress my teachers. But I wish there were pictures of the terms.
I never knew how much I didn't know about ballet until I found this app. The search feature is great since it searches both the name and the description (I found "croisé" by searching for "cross," and learned about Fifth Position by searching for "feet turned"). And by far my favorite feature is the dice in the upper right corner: tap it and you'll get a random glossary term with a hidden description -- great for quizzing yourself!
I love this app and its cool but take the hint! Sooooo many people are complaining about not enough pics and I agree. Would it really be that hard to add details and pictures?!?!? No ones asking for professional photos, just some reference point. I think you would sell lots more full versions with those improvements. I do thank you for providing this app because it is really cool it just needs work thats all.
I have taken ballet since I was 4 and our teacher makes us memorize our dance terms and write them down. Now i don't have to!! I already have it!! It also works great to review before an audition. I also love to quiz myself and try new moves. I love how it works out of Internet connection. To the people who say it doesn't work: There must be something wrong with your iPod or iPhone or iPad because this is the best app ever!!!!!!!!
It's cool. I'm a ballerina and there's some moves that I still don't know that my teacher says but now I know ALL of them because they're all on here. I study them all the time. I only give it four stars because it COULD use a picture on all of them. So it's easier to understand. Get now if you're a ballerina! :)
I like this app being that I take ballet but if you have no dance experience I might be a little difficult. I also wish there were more terms like sotabosque or something. And only a few have pictures. Overall good app.
I think this app could be difficult to understand if you are not a dancer and do not know the terms and positions. I think there should be more pictures with them terms so it could be clearer to understand. For being free, its good.
I just deleted this app. It couldn't resist giving me an ad for the pay version every time I clicked on a new term. It's pretty good for explaining the terms (though I agree pictures would make it a lot better). But if they're going to throw ads at me, how about every 5th click, or every 10th? Made it unusable.
The lookup format is unfortunate. I suggest adding a search option to lookup positions by description or picture instead of a long listing. Please work on adding additional and accurate photographs or diagrams.
