A lot of people in the Midwest call them capezios.

I saw someone up there mention it too, so at least it's out there.

The term "stag" is becoming more popular though.

In ballet it is called Grand Jete en Tournant in attitude. I call it the same in jazz.

But a stag leap is a grand jete with the front leg in plie or bent. Both legs bent is double stag, but what makes the jete a stag is always the front leg in plie.

Being primarily a ballet dancer, I also call it grand jete en tournant in attitude. I have heard the term Baryshnikov in reference to this step in passing, though. And I am sure that, like everything else not standardized, local vernacular has different names for it.

Stag leaps generally don't involve any sort of turning motion but are straight-on grand jetes with one or both legs in attitude.

Barrel turns generally involve a twisting of the upper body, to my knowledge, as though one is jumping over a barrel or a highjump bar.

Coffee grinders are done on the floor and don't travel. they begin in a side lunge and the extended leg makes a circular motion (like a coffee mill) and the supporting leg must jump over it as it comes around.

When I was in Australia it was called an attitude turn

In America it is a stag or calypso.
Hope that helps

We call those Jazz split turns where I live in Albeta, Canada.


Stags to us- Depending which leg you start with, if it's the right foot, the right leg is in a retire and the back leg is straight.

Switch splits/leaps are the same thing to everyone.

Calipsos to us - Prepare in 5th, and as you take off, the front leg is in an attitude to the front and the back leg is bent too but not in an attitude, because you want your leg to touch the back of your head, as you do a back bed.

Backwards jetes to us - If using the right foot, chasse to the front, step forward with the left, and as you take off to do a jete, your body turns to face the back wall and you do a jete at the same time.

turn on l'air, jump split turn, barrel, etc. It's all the same movement. Call it what they do at your studio :D :D . It's all good.

We call them calypsos - most other studios do too, as far as I'm aware.

In jazz classes, I have heard this leap most often called calypso. I have also heard ring jump.

I can assure you that it is not a pirouette fouette - I don't know how someone could say that - or a coffee grinder.

It's not a barrell jump either, because both legs are bent and your body is leaning towards your feet, basically. Sorry for the bad explanation.

I've head a lot of people call them calypsos, but I live in BC and no one calls them that here.

But I wouldn't call them a stap either, because whenever we do stags we start from both feet on the ground and then either bend one or two legs for a single or double stag.

Basically we call them chene (oh wow.. that looks really wrong!) jete attitude.

we just call them barrels. a stag to us is when your front leg is in a front attitude and your back leg is a back attitude. a c-jump or calypso is where both legs are in back attitude (all these done while turning)

I FORGET WHAT WE CALL THEM!!! lol As soon as I ask my teacher I'll get back to you in a flash....BUT....that is definitly NOT a barrel turn. You are correct in your explanation of a barrel turn 100%.

You are right. A barrel jump is one where both of the legs are bent while jumping. The jump you are referring to is called a calipso ( I am not 100% sure about the spelling but you can sound it out ca-lip-so). That is what we call it at my studio and I have heard it called this at some of the dance conventions that I have gone to.

I have always called them stag leapouts. That is if u prepare for it by a chaine. I may be wrong but a C-Jump and a Calypso are not the same thing.

^ You're right. A C-jump and a calipso are completely different.

At my studio we call them chaine back attitude jetes. Callipso for us is a jump where the front leg is either bent or straight and the back leg is bent behind you and trying to touch your head while you are back. Stags are front leg retire, back leg straight. Barrel turns are when you ballchange forward then arch your back and try to make your self into a "C" shape while you jump and turn back to the front. You can either do them with straight or bent legs.
