*Compatible with the Pose List Feature of the Pose Player!*

This has been one of my long-term goals ever since I started posing. I wasn't sure how feasible it would be to create ballet poses, but I always wanted to try it out. After a LOT of false starts, errors, hair-pulling and what not, I bring you twenty-four ballet poses: 12 solo poses (8 "warmups" and 4 "dance") and 12 poses for two sims to partner with each other. Four of the "soloist" poses use the barre from the Store's "Dance Collection," and may not line up quite as well with a custom ballet barre.

The set is split up into "Soloist" and "Pas de Deux" packages, in case you only want the solo or partnered poses. There's also a package that contains all 24, of course!

Pose tags are as follows:

1. a_splad_ballet01 -- barre stretch
2. a_splad_ballet02 -- leg stretch (floor)
3. a_splad_ballet03 -- barre stretch en pointe
4. a_splad_ballet04 -- sitting on floor
5. a_splad_ballet05 -- floor stretch
6. a_splad_ballet06 -- floor stretch, holding feet
7. a_splad_ballet07 -- barre stretch
8. a_splad_ballet08 -- barre stretch in fourth position
9. a_splad_ballet15 -- leap
10. a_splad_ballet16 -- high arabesque
11. a_splad_ballet17 -- leap, legs together
12. a_splad_ballet18 -- en pointe

Prima--Pas de Deux
1. a_splad_ballet09 -- female pose, being dipped
2. a_splad_ballet09b -- male pose, dipping female sim

3. a_splad_ballet10 -- arabesque
4. a_splad_ballet10b -- chassť

5. a_splad_ballet11 -- jumping to the left
6. a_splad_ballet11b -- jumping straight up, feet together

7. a_splad_ballet12 -- female pose, swan dive
8. a_splad_ballet12b -- male pose, holding female sim

9. a_splad_ballet13 -- female pose, en pointe
10. a_splad_ballet13b -- male pose, hand-in-hand

11. a_splad_ballet14 -- female pose, being dipped
12. a_splad_ballet14b -- male pose, dipping female sim

You can use these poses with either gender sim. These poses do not automatically stretch the male sim to be taller, so if your sims are not the same height, you will need to use an OMSP to line them up correctly.

And as always, you will need to use "moveobjects on" to place your sims in position and they will tangle into a silly-looking mess when you are done. This is okay! Direct them to walk away from each other and all will be well.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
