Here is an allegro combination suitable for preteens, to be danced to a 2/4 polka rhythm or, for more of a challenge, a quick waltz:
Glissade derrière—breathing arm to second and lower to bras bas.
Jeté derrière—arms third, front arm same as supporting leg.
Pas de chat—arms third, changing.
Changement—arms bras bas.
Repeat twice more (three times in all).
Échappé sauté—arms to second and bras bas.
Sous-sus (relevé in fifth)—arms presentation (demi-bras).
Repeat all to other side.
Make sure students keep allegro up to tempo or it will become heavy and build up unnecessary muscles. Insist on use of feet and a good push off the floor. This allegro is suitable for young teens, to be danced to a 2/4 polka or 6/8 rhythm:
Glissade derrière brisé over—arms third; repeat.
Brisé over, wide pas de bourrée over, finishing in wide fourth with the weight over the front foot—arms in arabesque line.
Pull up to fifth on demi-pointe; full détourné toward back foot.
Repeat all on the other side.
