Dansant Posted October 17, 2010 Report Share Posted October 17, 2010 Found the Messerer reference which is not related to chasse entournant. He writes on page 338: "Grandes pirouettes 'blintchicki' (in a number of poses) are executed at a very fast tempo, on the demi-plie of the supporting leg. The turn is worked out through the displacement of the heel toward the side of the turn; each move is accepted with a pressure of the heel onto the floor." In the exercise described on 338 the "blintchiki" are done a la seconde, followed by Russian 3rd arabesque, followed by a la seconde, and ending in a pirouette en dehors. I would call this grand pirouettes sautille, but I'm not sure what line of training "sautille" is from. (sorry no accent marks, not savvy on that) Quote Link to comment
