Terminology Tuesday Hauteur

Terminology Tuesday Hauteur

Arabesque à la hauteur [ah-ra BESK-ah la duh MEE oh-TUHR] means “arabesque at the height”.

In this arabesque the working leg is raised to a position that is at a right angle to the hip. Most of us today would call this a 90 degree arabesque.

An arabesque à la demi-hauteur is one where the working leg is at half-height, or halfway between the floor and the arabesque à la hauteur (90 degree arabesque).

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #32:
“Arabesque à la hauteur means arabesque at the height.”
