Ballet technique is the foundational principles of body movement and form used in ballet. A distinctive feature of ballet technique is the continuous outward rotation of the thighs from the hip, referred to as "turnout". There are five foundational leg positions in classical ballet, all performed with turnout. When performing jumps and leaps, classical ballet dancers strive to exhibit ballon, the appearance of briefly floating in the air.
