Terminology Tuesday Voyagé

Terminology Tuesday Voyagé

There’s no real surprise here. Voyagé [vwah-yah- ZHAY]means traveled or traveling. For a dancer the word means that the performer, in a particular pose (often arabesque) moves by a series of small jumps, each one landing in a demi-plie with the heel slightly raised.

Voyagé is often seen during the coda of a grand pas de deux (see the Link of the Day at 4:32).

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #56:
“Voyagé means traveled.”
