Terminology Tuesday Angel

Terminology Tuesday Angel

The term saut de l’ange [soh duh lahnzh] means angel’s step. It is the same as temps de l’ange.

It is similar to a temps de poisson, but the legs are bent instead of straight and the knees are slightly open. The back is arched, the head is back and the arms are up. 
The dancer doesn’t move in any direction except up and lands the jump in the same place he/she started.

The phrase is also translated as “swan dive”.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #77:
“Saut de l’ange means angel’s step.”
