A step naming question

Recommended Posts


If you have done a tendu, and then you lower your heel into second position, what is the name of the lowering action? 


          Thank you. :thumbsup:

I've never heard of a specific name for lowering the heel, just "tendu into second and lower the heel."

However, if the heel is then lifted and the foot is returned to the original position (first or fifth), I usually hear that referred to as a "double tendu".

In Vaganova schooling it is called pour le pied.
