Terminology Tuesday Portée

Terminology Tuesday Portée

This term is pretty much self-explanatory. Portée [pawr-TAY] means carried. Like the word porteur (see Terminology Secret #87) that means carrier, portée means any step that travels through the air from one point to another.

Portée can also refer to the carrying of a ballerina by her partner.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Terminology Secret #90:
Portée means carried.
