Pronunciation Guides


Recommended Posts

Is there anywhere on the web to hear the correct pronunciations of ballet terms?


My DD came home today and asked about "temps de fleche". .. .We looked up the step in Glasstone's but I didn't take French and I could not tell her how to pronounce the term.


She had a vague idea but couldn't remember it from class and wanted to go back to class knowing that word.

Gail Grant's Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet would help. In terms of that step, is it pronounced tohn de flesh. It means time of the arrow.
