A fouetté is one of the most difficult moves in ballet, where you spin continuously on the spot.
2. Swan Lake
In the final act of Swan Lake, the Black Swan completes an incredible 32 fouettés!
For a dancer to complete a fouetté they need to generate torque, a twisting force causing rotation. They do this by pushing off with their foot.
Air resistance and friction will slow the dancer down. By lifting their foot up and down every few turns they generate more torque.
Leg kicks keep their momentum going. The dancer can store momentum by extending the leg, which is then released when it is brought back in to the body.
