Question about The Dying SwanWhat is the name of the last position?
Posted 09 April 2011 - 08:52 AM
The Foukine's choregraphy ends with the swan on the floor, leaning forward over one extended leg, arms outstretched along the leg. It's an instantly recognisable image. Here's a googlesearch picture of the position:
My question is: does this position have a name or technical term? If so, can anone enlighten me?
Thanks in avance.

It is also the pose that Odette assumes at the start of the White Swan pas de deux.

Odile gets into this position too during the Adagio, in the next video at 3:53.
Yes, very nice find, thank you.
