Episode 2 Plie
Plié, translating in french as “bent” or “bending”, is the action of bending at the knees. Of course, when that happens, your ankles and hips are also technically bending. There are two different types of plié: grand plié and demi plié. A grand plié is a full bend of the knees until the thighs are parallel with the floor, while a demi plié looks more like a half bend, where the heels do not come off the floor.
