Dance Dictionary

 Darcey Bussell

Here's a call to all my dance students at En Avant - go check out American Ballet Theater's online dance dictionary! We played a game of Dance Jeopardy last week and no one knew what a grand jete was - yikes! This is a very basic jump dancers learn in their first year (Remember running and jumping over the object in the middle of the room? Yep, that was a grand jete!)

ABT's dance dictionary is the best one I've found online, although it is still not great. But, it is free! The pictures are tiny, but the videos are fun to watch. Catch up on your dance terminology so you can kick a@$ the next time we play this game!
