Can I get some tips on how to remember terms or what some other students do to remember? I know I can't be the only one wih this problem, haha. Thanks!

Gretchen Ward Warren's Classical Ballet Technique is another wonderful book with many very detailed photos showing exactly how steps are done. It's larger and costs more than Grant, but it's a very helpful visual aid.

Some examples of names that tell you what to do are:
Echappé sauté-escaping jump
More obscure, but still memorable would be:
Temps levé-time lifted
Temps lié-time linked
Battement balancé-balenced beating
I hope that helps!

I would be interested in getting Classical Ballet Technique even if it does cost more- but then it has pictures. After all I'm more of a visual learner, probably need pictures for an extra help. Any suggestions where to get it? Off a website or something? I'm pretty sure there isn't going to be any bookstores around here that sell it.
And I totally get what you're talking about ascballerina, some are more obvious than others.
