Danny Posted August 5, 2004 Report Share Posted August 5, 2004 Hey Danseurs, I did a search on the forum for information on grand jetes but didn't quite get the answer I needed so I'm asking again. On the ABT website there is clip of Vladimir Malakov doing a grand jete; from my observation it looks like he is leaned back as he goes into a plie with the left leg and battements his right leg. He then appears to rotate forward as his standing leg extends and propels him up and forward. His motion is very arc like. The women (basically everyone besides me) in my class seem to battement both legs at the same time into a split in the air. Is there difference between male and female grand jetes or are there just variations? I seem to get higher in the middle of the jump if I battement one leg at a time. Any thoughts? Thanks.
