Center work is designed to expand the dancer’s vocabulary with exercises that are longer and more physically demanding. Adagio work which may include pirouettes in open positions. More attention is given to traveling steps incorporating multiple turns. Intricate petite allegro (jumps) are embellished with battierie which may also include aerial turns. The grand allegro and coda sections may include steps in manages. Musicality, phrasing, and epaulement are stressed.
