Terminology Tuesday Déboulé

Terminology Tuesday Déboulé

Most dancers are familiar with chainé turns. But there is a term of the French school that you probably haven’t heard. It’s tour chainé déboulé (toor sheh-NAY day-boo-LAY).

It means: a chain of turns, rolling like a ball. The word déboulé is the part that means “rolling like a ball”. I've seldom heard it used today, at least in America, and it has been replaced by the simpler and shorter chainé.

Even so, it’s always fun to learn new things.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #30c:
“Tour chainé déboulé is the full term for chainé turns.”
