Adage before Frappé?

Recommended Posts



I know that the "set order" of barre is something that is completely fluid and variable and some teachers like to do grands battements after pliés and some teachers defer pliés to after tendus, etc., however, I'm wondering specifically about the pedagogical reason a teacher might choose to order the barre normally until fondu/ronds de jambes en l'air, then do adage, then frappé, then grands battements.  At first I thought it was a fluke (not familiar with this teacher), but he's done it several days in a row now.  Thoughts?
