An Elevation may be used on 3, rising high on toes. It is commenced in Closed or Contact Position.


Newcomer - Gold: Any syllabus figure ended with feet together.


Newcomer - Gold: Any syllabus figure commenced with feet together, depending on alignment


The Elevations are Chasses to Right or Left danced with a change of height either high on toes with legs straight or with feet flat and knees slightly flexed. Some possible combinations are: 2 Chasses up and 2 Chasses down, 1 Chasse up and 1 Chasse down, and 1 step up and 1 step down.

When using Elevations a Promenade shape may be applied, or changed to a Counter Promenade shape, particularly if the Chasses are curved to R.




The change of height gives a strong feeling of change of body position, so a Promenade shape could be changed to a Counter Promenade shape or vice versa as each change of height is achieved.
