1st position- feet are turned out (toes pointing outward) and heels are together. 2nd position- same as first position but the heels are not touching, they are slightly more than hip width apart. 3rd position- (not commonly used in Ballet, but still a position) feet are turned out and the heel of one foot is in front of the other and is touching the middle of the side of that foot. 4th position- feet are turned out and one foot is about a 6 inches to 1foot in front of the other foot. 5th position- same as fourth, but the feet are touching, heel to toe 6th position- (not commonlyl used in ballet) feet are together, not turned out.
