Jaana Heino Posted February 11, 2002 Report Share Posted February 11, 2002 We've been learning entrechat quatre now for some time, and I still don't get the numbering of entrechats despite all explanations (which generally say that you move your legs behind and before and all moves are counted twice). So, quatre is the one in which the legs cross back (2) and fore again (2)? Following this logic six should be back (2), fore (2) and back (2), but I'm under the impression that six is back, fore, back, and fore again, cause the ones that "change legs" should be odd-numberered ones? In any case I have not been able to figure out what entrechat deux is supposed to be... just something resembling basic saute, which would make trois a changement? Is there an entrechat number one? Am I completely lost? Is there a logic to this? (Not that it matters much, but it's been driving me crazy anyway... ) Quote Link to comment
