Terminology Tuesday Soulevé

Terminology Tuesday Soulevé

Soulevé or soulevée (sool-VAY) means raised and is used in conjunction with other terms, like rond de jambe soulevé (see Gail Grant’s Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet).

However, an internet search for a more detailed definition yielded little more information, and I have never encountered this word myself. It has apparently fallen out of common usage. It seems to be used most often in the French school of training.

But there you have it - another term to add to your vocabulary!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #30i:
“Soulevé or soulevée means raised.”
