If you do decide to name steps, I very strongly recommend buying Gail Grant's 'Technical Manual and Dictionary of Ballet'. It is not very expensive (about $5 and usually readily available at Borders or B&N) but it contains just about every academic classical ballet step there is--and even more importantly, it will help you make sure all the terms are spelled correctly. Many ballet terms are very frequently misspelled and misused, particularly 'sissonne' (everyone wants to neglect the second 'n'). Most people probably wouldn't notice, but those in the field definitely would.
