    An Assemblé is a springing step in which the dancer jumps off from both feet, assembles their legs in the air and lands on both feet

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. An Assemblé is a ballet movement where the dancer starts with one foot on the ground, jumps into the air, and brings the other foot to meet it before landing on both feet. It is not a springing step where the dancer jumps off from both feet and lands on both feet.

    A Pas de Chat's literal meaning is 'step of the cat'.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

    If you were dancing on stage at the Martha B Knoebel theater and were asked by the choreographer to move upstage, you would take a few steps toward the audience.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Moving "upstage" means moving away from the audience, towards the back of the stage. In this case, since the dancer is already on stage, moving upstage would mean taking a few steps backwards, away from the audience. Therefore, the statement is false.

  • 6. 

    It is possible to do an Attitude and a Sauté at the same time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is possible to do an Attitude and a Sauté at the same time because these are two different dance moves that can be performed simultaneously. Attitude is a ballet position where one leg is lifted to the front or back while the body is balanced on the other leg. Sauté, on the other hand, is a jump where both feet leave the ground at the same time. Therefore, it is possible to execute both moves simultaneously.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A Sissone is not a small jump that starts from one foot and lands on both feet. In fact, a Sissone is a ballet term for a jump that starts from two feet and lands on one foot. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
