Terminology Tuesday Tour Fall

Terminology Tuesday Tour Fall

In the category of things you can’t make up comes tour en l’air avec chute allongée. This is described in Gail Grant’s book as “Turn in the air with an outstretched fall.”

The description goes further: “This is a double tour en l’air in which the dancer, before the end of the movement, inclines his body in the direction of the turn and falls sideways to the floor in a horizontal position.”

I couldn’t find a video demonstrating this step and all I can say is Wow.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #30e:
“Tour en l’air avec chute allongée is a tour that falls.”
