This is the French word for a jump. SautÃ©s include: Petits sautÃ©s - these are small jumps where the feet don't change positions mid-air. EchappÃ©s sautÃ©s - (literally a ripping jump) these are jumps where the legs jump up together, but split apart mid-air and land in second position. Changements - these are sautÃ©s where the feet change position, i.e. front and back feet swap, whilst still very close together, mid air. Entrechats quatres - this is like a changement but involves a rapid beating of the feet, where the front leg moves to the back and then moves back to the front, creating a rapid, blurring effect of the feet mid-air.
