the ballet people are right that it's a jete en tournant. The calypso thing refers to the two-footed jump mentioned previously, but people call this step by the same name to conjure the image of the back stag. It's only considered a barrel leap if you intend to incorporate the arched back. All barrel turns have an arched back. SO everyone's got a point. Except for the coffee grinder person...

I've never heard of the name back stag but i understand why you would call it that. We call it either Barishnikoff or just plain and simple back attitude

I grew up with it being called a "Barishnakov", then changed stuidos and it became a "Ring Jump", then changed again and it became a "back stag".....when teach I use Barishnakov, I guess it was the most familia to me. But I find I connstantly have to explain myslef or use the multiple other names when I want my students to do this jump

We generally call it a Calypso or a Baryshnikov. I've also heard it called jete attitude en tournant.
I think it's one of those regional things--it's the same jump with different names.

I've always referred to them as barrell turns and the turn you call a barrell turn I call a double attitude jump/turn. Of course, I've never heard of any of the other responses you got for this type of turn so who knows???

I've always called it a single stag. I learned also that a barrel turn goes the reverse direction like you are rolling over someones back but with both legs in attitude. I suppose it is different in different sections of the country.

Anything from turning jettes, forward barrell, i thought a calypso was a double stagg in attitude, but i agree also that we need universal terminology

Most definately Baryshnikov attitude (so named after the famous Russian ballet dancer). Of course, this would be where you stamp-turn (a chaine in plie) then your leg fans out and you jete with the back leg in attitude. I just learned how to do these two weeks ago, but everyone calls them a Baryshnikov. If the back leg is straight, it becomes a turning jete.

I have one teacher that calls them attitude jumps and another teacher that calls them single stag jumps. Whatever floats your boat... You could probably make up a name and eventually it would catch on! ;)

Much love!
