So after finding out I cant ever take lyrical, I have started watching even more lyrical videos on youtube.

I have been wondering for a while what this move is called.

www.youtube.com . . .

at :18 when her leg is bent.

Can anyone please tell me what it is called?

She's doing passe pirouette turns, fouette into an attitude pirouette, in to passe pirouette turns... as I would describe it.

The bent leg is an attitude...that's the position where a leg is off the ground and bent WHILE not touching the supporting leg. Thus, it's an attitude turn. However, because it is part of a sequence, she fouettes INTO the attitude pirouette.

I disagree with the above poster about the romb versare (I'm looking up the spelling and can't find it either.) As I know it, the 'romb versare' crosses the body, and raises in a circular motion....which the dancer didn't do. I'm curious to the spelling, though. It's very similar, but the fouette transition ideally stays at the same level through the transition.

A Renverse is when the leg circles up and over and around into a back attitude and it includes a tilt of the body.

The individual move/position at 18 seconds is a back attitude. She is doing a fouette series that includes the attitude and passe positions.

It's spelled renversé. I looked it up in my ballet dictionary.
