Brisé

Recommended Posts

Why are brisés called brisés? They don't look broken to me, and I don't feel "broken" after I do them :P, so is there some sort of historical thing I'm missing?

 

Hope I put this in the right spot....I wasn't sure. :wacko:

This a good place for this question, because it involves the historical way in which the step evolved. The brisé was originally a glissade from fourth croisé to fourth croisé. The beat "broke" the glissade in its travel and so that's why the step is called "broken".

I know this is an old topic, but thanks a lot for the info! I've never thought of brisé as a kind of glissade, that totally makes sense!!
