Terminology Tuesday Jarret

Terminology Tuesday Jarret

The word jarret [zha-REH] in French means hock, shank, or bend of the knee. It is related to the term jarreté which I talked about in a previous blog: http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/2019/06/terminology-tuesday-jarrete.html

I’ve never heard jarret used in a dance class, and there are few references to this term online. But it does exist and you may encounter it somewhere, someday. Therefore it is good to know. Knowledge is never wasted and learning new stuff is fun.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #91:
”Jarret means hock (bend of the knee).”
