I'd just like to add, too, that if you're going to mention any ballet terms, spell them correctly! The correct spellings are: pirouette, glissade developpe, pas de chat, fouette, bourree.


I agree. I'm not trying to be mean or anything but I think it is a really great skill to be able to correctly spell ballet terms. You can look up online ballet dictionaries if you're struggling :)

I put down attitude and arabesque turns. When done nicely, with correct technique and all, they can look really pretty. Plus I really, really enjoy doing them

JUMPS! Definitely. I love that awesome sensation like you're soaring through the air when you're doing any kind of jump. It feels so free!

I voted jumps, even though in my present classes I am working most on becoming a better turner. I simply have no balance but in the air that's not a problem. It's been only this year that I can do a reasonably controlled single pirouette, ending (usually) with my working foot in front fifth or back fifth or whatever is needed. But doing a tour en l'air? It feels totally natural. Sad that it's a move that women don't do as often.

fouettes or grand alegro. I love turning and when I do grand alegro I feel like I'm flying.

Personally I like turns and jumps. My teacher recently choreographed a combination/variation for an upcoming recital that involved a fast turn section from the corner in involving shennaes, piques, double piques, and attitude turns. I like beats and grand jetes when it come to jumps. I am working on my triple pirouette and double fouettes on flat and double turns and foutttes en pointe. I'm only twelve and I LOVE what I do and hope to be possibly professional one day

I was deciding between arabesque or jumps and decided to go with arabesque because I love all of it. For jumps, I just like grand allegro because it feels like you're flying.

I love arabesques and attitudes, especially attitude derrière. I also like the grands sauts (jumps). And I adore everything done in cambré (not really a move, but still).

My most favourite move is the arabesque, it's simple but looks beautiful.

I personally love pirouette'x because no matter how much you think you have perfected them, theres always more you can do in the sequence of pirouettes so its continually challenging

I think my favourite has to be bourees as uncommon as that is!! They make me feel like I'm gliding and they are also one of my strengths so I think that makes me like them more. Ironically enough when I first started pointe I dreaded them but after lots of practice and some helpful tips from my teachers I have come to love them :)

My favourite move is definitely grand jetes because I can jump really high and almost have the full splits in the air! I love it and it feels like your suspended in the air and flying! I also love the balances because they look so pretty and are like waltzing. My 3rd favourite are turns - pirouttes, fouettes, chene and pique. Im not good at them, Im still trying to get the hang of spotting, but they are beautiful when done right.

My favorites are actually ballonnes. They're so much fun! You don't have them listed, though. :(
