Terminology Tuesday Sautillé

Terminology Tuesday Sautillé

Tour sautillé [toor soh-tee-YAY] is a term of the Russian school. This is a hopping turn, performed with a series of small hops in demi-plié.

These hopping turns are usually done in arabesque or attitude (see today’s Link of the Day below at 1:04).

The word sautillé means bounce and also applies to a fast violin stroke.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #57:
“Tour sautillé is a hopping turn.”

Quote of the Day:
“Many think that the mark of a great champion is the nature and margin of their victories and the peaks they scale and reach. That’s only part of it. The mark of the greatest of champions is how they react and respond to defeat. That is when they become enshrined in our hearts and minds – as they rise again and into the immortal pages of history.”
― Rasheed Ogunlaru
