The touchstone of the academic repertoires of all major companies, Paquita Grand Pas is divided into an introduction, an adagio, variations and a coda, thus complying with the canons of ballet. Designed to highlight the expertise of its performers, this Grand Pas is made up of a series of skilfully intertwined movements. This entertaining piece, which is very popular among leading dancers, is a firework display of technical feats.
