Terminology Tuesday Pressée

Terminology Tuesday Pressée

There are many different kinds of glissades and here is one: glissade pressée. The term means glissade hurried, or pressed and is the same as glissade précipitée which also means hurried.

If this isn’t enough, glissade piquée which means glissade pricked is also the same as glissade précipitée which presumably makes it the same as glissade pressée.

Regardless, any of these terms refer to a glissade that moves quickly and is about half the size of a normal glissade.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #68:
“Glissade pressée means hurried.”
