Terminology Tuesday Remontant

Terminology Tuesday Remontant

Petit jeté en remontant [puh-TEE zhuh-TAY ahn  ruh-mawn-TAHN] is a term of the French school of training. It means a small jeté that moves upstage. According to Gail Grant’s book on ballet terminology, it is another term for jeté dessous (which means jeté over).

According to https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/french-english/remontant, the word remontant is a masculine noun that means a “tonic” or “pick-me-up”. It also means “a person or thing that boosts”, according to https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/french-english/remontant.

No wonder ballet can be so confusing!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #71:
“Petit jeté en remontant means small jeté moving upstage.”
