The answer is letter A. The ballet dance term which means “to jump” is Sauté. Ballet originated in the Italian Renaissance courts as a performance dance in the 15th century. As years progressed, it was then developed into a form of concert dance in Russia and in France. Sauté literally means jump in ballet – it is considered as a single jump wherein the ballet dancer jumps vertically in the air.

There are five types of jumps in ballet and these jumps are as follows: 1) Sauté which is a single jump wherein the ballet dancer lands on two feet, 2) Temps Leve wherein a ballet dancer hops from one foot to the same foot, 3) Jete wherein a dancer leaps from one foot to the other foot, 4) Assemble wherein a ballet dancer jumps with one foot but lands on two feet and 5) Sissonne wherein the dancer jumps using two feet but lands with only one foot.
