Objectives:

arabesque:

The gesture leg is extended behind the dancer’s body at 90° or higher, which requires hip and spine hyperextension,

knee extension, and ankle-foot plantar flexion.

glissade:

“Slide or glide”. A linking or preparatory step. The initiating leg slides out into dégagè, weight is transferred to it to

allow the other leg to point and slide into fifth. It can be performed slow (adagio) or fast (allegro), but is always

smooth and continuous
