Terminology Tuesday Grand Emboîté

Terminology Tuesday Grand Emboî

Most of us are familiar with emboité, but I seldom heard the term grand emboité. Of course it means big, but here is the full definition from https://themasterdance.com/ballet-terminology/: “A grand emboîté is a traveling jump where each leg is alternately brought to attitude in the air, each foot passing the previous one in alternating.”

Also from the same site, a regular or small emboîté is “known as a petit jeté in RAD and the French school.”

The word emboîté itself translates to “nested” in English and embroîér means “to fit together”.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #52:
“A grand emboîté is a big emboîté.”
