Transition Step to Pirouette En De Dans

Recommended Posts


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:
