Wild Wednesday Sissonne Variations

Wild Wednesday Sissonne Variations

A student asked me recently about what a sissonne with a développé is called. I have always heard it called sissonne retombé, or sissonne doubles but it is also, not surprisingly, called sissonne développé assemblé.

The confusion is probably due to the fact that this is a compound step, or one made of a combination of other steps, like développé and assemblé.

This step is most commonly seen near the end of the male variation from Peasant Pas de Deux from the ballet Giselle (see Link of the Day).

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #15ooo:
“A sissonnes doubles or sissonne retombé is a variation on a sissonne.
