Help me settle a jazz terminology dispute (karma: 1)

Recently there was a friendly dispute among dancers regarding the correct/technical name for a jazz move. Basically the move is a jazz split in the air...a TURNING JUMP where the front leg is extended straight and the back leg is bent into attitude.

Dancers labeled the move everything from a barrel turn, to a coffee grinder, to a piroutte foutee, to a jazz split jump. I was surprised that the majority felt it was a barrel turn, which I always thought to be a turn on l'air with both legs bent and focus to the ground. Am I right??Anyway, could someone please give me the proper TECHNICAL term for the movement mentioned above. Thanks so much!

Well if it's the move I'm thinking of, I don't call it by any of those names! lol! You generally chaine into it right? If yeah, I've always been taught to call it a barignakov (sorry about the spelling I'm usually pretty good when it comes to dance terms, but I'm not sure about this one..) Sometimes we can it a turning jete... Hope I helped in some way!

Oh dear- I have always called it a 'Back Stag' - and that's all I have ever heard it called. Why won't someone just step up to the plate and REGULATE jazz terms across the board? May be I will do it. Do I have any supporters?

I agree w/ studio1
they should make all jazz terms the same

at my studio some teachers call that leap a capezio and some call it a turning leap w/ back attitude, or a turning attitude leap, and lots of variations of that.


but i dont think there is a specific name for it.

i have had so many teachers call moves by different names

We call these single stags. If you do it with both legs in attitude we call it a double stag.

A coffe grinder to usis when your on the floor sitting on haft point on one leg and the other is straight out to the side and you spin the straight leg around and under you.

Sometimes we do barrel stag leaps. This is where we do a single stag leap but fan your front leg and arch your back when you jump.

I don't call it any of those things, but right now I'm a little tired and I can't think of what we call it. We might not even have a name for it!

But OnPointeDance - wouldn't it be a turning Leap? Because my whole life I have been taught that a jump is two feet to two feet, a hop is one foot to that same one foot, and a leap is one foot to the opposite foot.

at my current studio it is called back stag, but at a studio I used to dance, it was called turning jete. I cant personally see how they can call that a barrell turn, but a lot of other other terms I can see it being called.

I'm not really sure if this is what you are talking about, but at my studio we call them callipsos. I know a lot of other places that call them that as well.

We call them (tombe) coupe jetes because it's basically the same as a ballet coupe jete, but bigger.

I agree with studio1, jazz really needs an official set of names for moves. It gets kind of annoying to have to describe the move because no one calls it what you do.

Also, I second fabulousfeet, it is a leap, not a jump.

You definately have a supporter here! What about ballet? I only started a couple of years ago and am 16. Ballet terms are so confusing especially when u are put in a advanced class and the defenitions for one term is in french, and the defenition for that term is in french. its like a never ending cylcle!!!
