Terminology Tuesday Cabriole en Tournant

Terminology Tuesday Cabriole en Tournant

As the term suggests, a cabriole en tournant [ka bree AWL ahn tour NAHN] is a cabriole that turns. It can be a cabriole dessous en tournant (turning under), or a cabriole dessus en tournant (turning over).

In the book Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet the cabriole dessus en tournant is described as follows: “This is a grand fouetté en tournant done with the beat of a cabriole devant executed before the fouetté”. In the dessous version the cabriole is performed derrière and is executed after the fouetté.

Today’s short video shows the step being demonstrated.
