Pas de deux

Published:

Pas de Deux is French for "Step of Two" and is what partnering is called in ballet. By dancing with a partner the lady can jump higher, take positions she would never be able to on her own, and "float" about the stage as she is carried by her partner. A partner allows a man to extend his line and show off his strength.

In pas de deux the man quite often does not stand in a balletic position or appear to be dancing at all. He can do this because the audience will almost always watch the lady, but now that you have read this I'm sure that you will watch the man as well next time you go to the ballet to see if it is really true. The man acts as a "third leg" for the lady by stabilizing, lifting, and turning her.

Thank you in advance for all faves and comments! I appreciate everyone's continued support. You are all an inspiration to further my motivation as I grow as an artist.
