A demi-plie is when a ballet dancer bends the knees until just below the hips while maintaining the turn-out. The thighs and the knees need to be directly above the line of the toes. The intention is to keep the heels on the ground as long as possible. The motion should be fluent. Once the bottom of the bend is achieved the bend is then reversed.

This figurine of a girl illustrates her practicing her demi-plie in third position. She practices until she achieves the perfect demi-plie. She is made from cold cast bronze and measures 8 7/8"H.
