Hello Teachers,

Are there any Borovansky teachers out there? I have just began to teach this syllabus and I am having some trouble translating the positions of the arms as they differ from my previous training.
If it is possible I am after a the name of each position of the arms paired with a photo or picture and any notes which I should be made aware of ie. placement

I know the positions of the arms to be (just a brief summary so i can learn the differences!)
Bras bra
meaning 'arms down' opposite 5th or just in front of the body
demi-second
arms are at tutu height with palms down extended to the side of the body
1st position
a rounded shape in front of the body just above the belly button to which you open almost all other positions from
2nd position
arms are extended to either side
3rd position
one arm is in 1st one arm is in 2nd
the arm that is in 1st will be the same arm as the front leg
3rd in opposition
the arm that is in 1st will be opposite to the front leg
4th position
one arm is above the head in 5th the other extended to the side in 2nd
the arm above will be the same as the front leg
4th in opposition
the arm above will be the opposite to the front leg
4th crossed
one arm is above the head in 5th and the other is in 1st
5th position
both arms are above the head to frame the face
ecarte
the arms are in a diagonal line with the body
adoe
the arms are in 1st arabesque however you are turning the back to the audience
1st arabesque
the front arm is in line with the eyes, the other arm is just behind the line of the shoulder and lower than the shoulder
2nd arabesque
the front arm is opposite the supporting leg and the other arm is extended to the side, both shoulder height
3rd arabeseque
one arm is in 1st arabesque the other is in 1st with the palm down

THANK YOU for your help!
