Terminology Tuesday Enlèvement

Terminology Tuesday Enlèvement

At first this word may seem unfamiliar, but enlèvement [ahn-lev-MAHN] is something that is done frequently in ballet. It means “carrying off” and refers to when the male dancer lifts his partner.

The word enlever means remove, and we are all familiar with levé which means light or raised as in the small jump called temps levé.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology #53:
“Enlèvement means carrying off.”
