What's the name for this move (Don Quixote DVD cover)?

Here's Lepeshinskaya's earlier rendition of the part in question. As we can see, @ 1:06 she opens her variation with a sissone, pretty much a smaller scale version of "The Plisetskaya". Now, at the very moment where Plisetskaya does the first of the two, Lepeshinskaya dances a completely different series of steps-(@ 1:18).

By chance found this photo of Lepeshinskaya when looking for something else from Soviet era--hard to tell from a still photo but at least a strong family resemblance to the jump being discussed:

(There is other quite wonderful video of her on youtube...not doing this jump, but very fun.)
