When did men start to do coupe jete en tournant with 180 degrees splits and who was the first person doing it?

Aurora does coupe jetes, too.... it's not just a guy thing.

But it's a good question, when did they start.

SIzova did them with splits in the old Kirov Sleeping Beauty, that would have been 1970-something.

Some guys were doing them in the Royal Ballet in the 60s. So, nothing that new.

Are there any dancers who do it without the split now? Has the split become the standard for coupe jete?
