Ballet En Dehors vs En Dedans

What the difference and how to do en dehors and en dedans ballet

Ballet En Dedans means inwards. In ballet steps the term en dedans means that the leg a terre and en l'air moves in a circular direction counterclockwise from back to front. Pirouettes en dedans is performed inwards towards the supporting leg.

Ballet En Dehors means outwards. In ballet steps the term en dehors means that the leg a terre and en l'air moves in a circular direction clockwise from front to back. Pirouettes en dehors is performed outwards towards the working leg.

May you reach your center stage.

Much love
