Terminology Tuesday Fouetté Raccourci

Terminology Tuesday Fouetté Raccourci

You will remember that the word raccourci means shortened (Terminology Secret #41).  Therefore, fouetté raccourci [fweh-TAY ra-koor-SEE]means fouetté, or whipped, shortened. Hmmm.

This step is similar to a petit fouetté, according to Gail Grant’s dictionary of ballet terms. From second position en l’air, the working foot cuts behind the supporting leg with a bent knee. The height of the thigh is maintained.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #88:
“Fouetté raccourci means fouetté shortened.”
