Technique Tuesday Week 3

Technique Tuesday— Week 3: Fouetté Turn ft. Michelle Oakman, First Company Dancer w/ @usinternationalballet

Fouetté Turn:
A classical ballet term meaning “whipped turns.” A fouetté turn is usually performed by a female ballet dancer, often as a series of 32 turns in the coda at the end of a pas de deux.

1. Begin with a preparation. Michelle started in a plié in fourth position, but there are a few different ways to begin, like a turning pas de bourree
2. To start the turn, do a pirouette— a full turn with the gesture leg in in retiré
3. Next, plie on the working leg while the gesture leg extends from retiré to croise front
4. Rond de jambes to the side so the gesture leg is in second position or a la seconde
5. Releves on your working leg and bring the gesture leg back into retiré to begin a turn again
6. Repeat

Make sure you try both directions, and even try to do a double foutte when you’re ready!

Check back next week for another Technique Tuesday!

Technique Tuesday— Week 1: Bouree ft. Jess Plaskon, demi-soloist with US International Ballet!

Bourree:
A movement in ballet in which the dancer transfers body weight quickly from foot to foot, in a series of small steps.
1. Start in fifth position on relevé
2. Take small steps towards your front foot
3. The back foot steps first, keep your legs crossed and turned out. The front foot “chases” the back foot.
4. Finish in fifth position.

Make sure you try both directions! Check back next week for another Technique Tuesday!
