Entrelacé

Ballet Term Definition

Entrelacé is a classical ballet term meaning “interlaced.”  A dancer performs an entrelacé by battementing one leg to the front while plieing on the other, then jumping and landing on the first leg while completing a half turn in the air. The second leg, or the push off leg, typically ends in an arabesque.

An entrelacé is another term used to describe tour jeté.
