Hi there. does anyone out there in cyberland know of any great sites that depict or give a description of the difference of envelope and develope.
How do other teachers teach it as a leap exercise? I personally begin it at the barre with the working leg only and proceed from there. any other ideas, thoughts and or comments would be most appreciated :)

I first really came across the term enveloppé when I was dancing in France. To envelope or wrap around. It can be a reversed developpé action taken softly in an adage or sharply as a returning action through retiré from a grand battement.

Enveloppé gives momentum to inward turns and can be a pirouette with a full rond de jambe en l’air action from 4th derriere which may finish in retire or back into arabesque. In Aurora’s diagonal in Sleeping Beauty Act 3 she does an enveloppé turn ending in a fish dive.

As you also suggest enveloppé can also be used in elevation in a type of jeté.
