Terminology Tuesday Middle

Terminology Tuesday Middle

A term you seldom in the U.S. is au milieu [oh-mee-LYUH]. This French term means in the middle or center.

After barre, dancers move au milieu – or into the middle of the room for center practice. I’ve always heard simply “come into the center” or something similar, even when I danced outside the U.S.

But it’s always enlightening and fun to increase one’s vocabulary!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #1a:
Au milieu means in the middle.”

“It's so difficult, isn't it? To see what's going on when you're in the absolute middle of something? It's only with hindsight we can see things for what they are.”
