Terminology Tuesday En Reculant

Terminology Tuesday Reculant

Emboîté en reculant  (ahn bwah TAY ahn ruh kew LAHN) means an emboîté that moves away from the audience, or upstage. It is a term of the French school, and its opposite is emboîté en descendant, which moves toward the audience, or downstage.

These terms most likely come from the time when stages were raked (slanted toward the audience) which is where the terms upstage and downstage come from.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #30j:
“Emboîté en reculant  moves away from the audience.”
