Transition Step to Pirouette En De Dans

Recommended Posts

ViolaDancer

I was trying to remember the name of this transition (if there is one, of it's a combination) -

I believe it goes something like : facing corner step with downstage leg, upstage leg, then coupe downstage leg facing opposite corner and place fourth.

 

Any thoughts?

Not anything I recognize, ViolaDancer.  If you are moving from upstage L. towards downstage R, after stepping left then right a coupé would release the right leg to an effacé position towards the right, and then the en dedans pirouette would be from an effacé 4th position. It is possible, but not the usual, as en dedans  pirouette usually will start from a croisé position. :shrug:

It may just be choreography I guess. Thanks!

Hi, just a thought, but if you mean step croisé, then cut/coupé (the upstage leg) under so you can freely rond de jambe the downstage leg to the opposite corner croisé derrière, that sounds like a renversé. Although usually finished with a pas de bourée en tournant back to the original croisé (devant), it is possible to just land that rdj leg in the croisé derriere to prep for a pirouette 4th. (Pirouette en dedans would turn the opposition direction of the renversé.) Maybe that rings some bells!
