I'll work on becoming more accustomed to the step.
Temps de cuisse, thanks for mentioning where the "against time" moment is, because of the way that certainly relates to the name - so important to being able to understand the "sense" of it.
Thanks very much -- Ludmilla

Is the pose temp leve a component element of the (full) contretemps itself? Or is the contretemps only the small portion (what I'd call "the linking portion"), of the brush through to 4th/coupe dessous - which you mentioned, should be desus (over)/small developpe passe devant (to repeat this to the other side)? If so, would you consider that 'small, linking portion' a form of demi-contretemps, or full contretemps? Again, I'm asking as I become more familair w/ the possibly various forms of the step, and the designations of demi- vs. full contretemps. Thank you,

As you appeared to be having trouble I was merely trying to break down the combination into bite sized pieces.

i think teachers in my area at least say "contretemps" as a sort of shorthand when they mean "full contretemps" and most say "demi-contretemps" when they mean that step.... It causes confusion for a student such as myself, but for their regular students, it probably is clear....
This will really help in my recognizing and being accustomed to possible different versions of the step and different ways of referring to it. Thanks again -
