Terminology Tuesday Collé

Terminology Tuesday Collé

The word collé [kaw-LAY] means glued or adhering. Other definitions include: stuck and close fitting. In Gail Grant’s book on ballet terminology she states: “Both legs are kept tightly together in mid-air in a temps sauté.”

I don’t recall hearing this term when I was performing, and a Google search revealed little about the word, at least as far as ballet technique is concerned.

But collé is also a violin technique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBsfHYE-4hc.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #84:
“Collé means glued.”
