Yes, going on a voyage is do much more picturesque than just travelling arabesque...

I was also taught sissonnes--or sissonnes en arabesque en avant for this particular case--perhaps with ferme to failli as well
but I would say arabesques voyagees are what we see Myrtha do in Giselle or the ballerina do backwards in Tchaik Pas?

Yes. At 10:04 Giselle does tours a l'italienne. Arabesques voyagees travel in a line.

I know that this thread has been dormant for a while, but I'm hoping to revive it with a few new questions...

 

Can anyone identify the name of the turn/leap Roberto Bolle does between 2:16:38 and 2:16:45 in the following video?

 

Also... during a pirouette or pique turn, if the dancer's toe (of the raised leg) crosses the knee of the standing leg, is that poor technique -- or artistic choice? For example, in the following video, you can see the "crossover" at approximately 45:37. It looked odd to me, but I'm not really sure.

 

thanks a lot!

Sasha

I believe that jump is called coupé jeté en attitude.

 

As to the foot in passé it's what is called over-crossed and is technically incorrect. The box of the pointe shoe should be just under the knee on the inside of the standing leg - only crossed about half way on the standing leg. Sometimes in supported pirouettes there's a fear of the passé leg's knee hitting the partner and one tends to over-cross.
