je danse dans ma tete Posted October 6, 2006 Report Share Posted October 6, 2006 I'm having trouble figuring out a new step that our teacher taught last class. She called it "chassé-coupé". I know the chassé part, and I can do chassés by themselves, but I always end up jumping the chassé instead of gliding it when there is a jum that comes after. What my teacher calls coupé is like a sauté from 5th position. I never thought this was coupe before, because another teacher showed us coupe as where the heel of one foot is above the ankle of the other and you move the working foot from front to back over and over? My questions: what exactly is coupé? how do I avoid jumping my chasse when I have to bring my feet to 5th in the air? Sorry if this does not make much sense, my English isn't that good sometimes.
