Ballet | Step-by-step | Tendu

The dancer stretches out her leg and moves her foot from one position to another, while keeping it on the floor.

The word means ‘stretched’, and is a shortened term for 'battement tendu'. This basic movement can work as a preparation for a more difficult one.

Performed by Yasmine Naghdi of The Royal Ballet.
