What are these steps called?


Recommended Posts

Please excuse my ignorance, but I was wondering if anyone can give me an idea what the steps at the following times are in the video link posted below:


4:19 and again at 4:23?

4:19 and 4:23 - A sort of character saut de basque. Not purely academic classical ballet, but "choreography." :grinning:


4:28 - a trick, not classical ballet


7:39 - another trick

At 4:28 it looks to me like he is opening up the saut de basque into a grand rond de jambe.


7:39 looks like a variation on a Rivoltade. You see this kick a lot in martial arts.
