Today we are breaking down tour jeté also known as jeté entrelacé or grand jeté en tournant or simply entrelacé.
Although it has many names today I will be referring to it as tour jete because that is what I grew up with.
I remember when I first started ballet this step seemed very complicated to me and I usually got myself all tangled up.
In this video I do my best to break it up into manageable bites showing you exercises that build the strength that is needed. Starting off with just being able to jump with your leg fully front and with your leg fully back separately before joining them together for our final product.
Thanks to my lovely student Tiegan for being my model again, miss you!
Let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy! ♥
