Terminology Tuesday A Plat

Terminology Tuesday A Plat

A term of the French school, à plat [a pla] means on the flat. It means that the entire bottom of the foot is in contact with the ground.

It is the same as pied à terre [pyay a tehr], a term of the Cecchetti school, which means – not surprisingly – foot on the ground.

Sometimes the answers are simple.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #73:
“The term à plat means on the flat.”
