Terminology Tuesday Entrée

Terminology Tuesday Entrée

The word entrée [ahn-TRAY] doesn’t just mean the main course of a meal, although the origin of the word is the same. It means “entrance” and according to https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/101852/why-is-a-meals-main-course-referred-to-as-entree: “After the entree (or entrees) came the soup, and after the soup, the roast, and after the roast, the final course. According to food historians, this order of service gradually changed. By the 1650s, the French entrée was a hot meat dish served after the soup.”

In dance It means the arrival (entrance) of a dancer or a group of dancers who are about to perform. It can also apply to the beginning of a grand pas de deux in which the couple makes their entrance.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #54:
