Terminology Tuesday Monter

Terminology Tuesday Monter

The term monter [mawn-TAY] means “to rise” or “to mount”. It refers to moving (rising) onto demi-pointe or full pointe.

It is a term of the French school, and I have heard it used, but not frequently, in America.

But now you’ll recognize monter when and if you hear it!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #85:
Monter means to rise.”
