How to achieve a better Tour Jeté

A Tour Jeté  is a jump or leap that is big, Take ballet class consistently because Tour jetes require strength. It requires to push off of the floor and achieve a great height. To achieve great height you need to have a preparation that will give you max momentum. You can prepare by a grace run, tombe pada boure, or sashe. After preparation steps push off of the floor with your left foot and extend your right leg straight in front and then your left foot directly in back of you. You should basically be in the splits in the air, make sure to point your toes hard! Your arms should be in 4th position which means your left arm should be straight out in front of you and right arm straight to the side. The arms contrast to what leg you extend first! KristiBooneJeteFullSize
