What is this step called?

Hi

Maybe someone already posted about this, but I'm not sure what this step is called so I don't know how to search it!

I always write down my corrections and call it something like 'grand rond de jambe battement jete'" but I think I just made that up.

 

For en dehors, you start in a low attitude front, stretch the leg and throw it to a high extension a la seconde, and lower the leg over ecarte' to a tendu en arriere.

 

Can someone tell me what the proper name is?

 

P.S. sorry for lack of French accent marks

I can find a video if no one understands what I'm talking about

Thanks- I guess it was simpler than I thought!

P.S. sorry for posting in the wrong forum. This is what happens when I think of random questions at 10:00 pm!
