Which jump is it?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

I fell in love with a jump that Kitri does in the first act of Don Quixote, but I don't know how it's called... can someone tell me the name please? The jump to which I refer is at the minute 2:39 of the video that I link you. I hope in a your answer, thank you as always!

I believe temps de flèche can be done to the front or to the back. See this video:

Also this blog (http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/2014/04/terrific-tuesday-temps-de-fleche.html)

”Temps de fleche is not a common step, but it is often found in several famous classical ballets such as Corsaire and Paquita.  It is essentially a jump from one foot to another, often with an extended kick when it is performed to the front;  or with both legs in attitude when it is done to the back.”
