Thanks for this information.Temps level is a term that is used in a more advanced level of ballet. Just getting in to the summer program like Tessa did, meant she was a very good dancer at age 9 doing stuff that nine year olds do.
Like a child who quit skating early may not know what a counter is. You don’t do it until a certain skill set is established.
I know very little about ballet, especially the term/names of moves. So it makes sense now why Tessa who was a promising ballet student wouldn’t know this particular term.
