Brisé – Starting from fifth, the dancer brushes the back leg forward through first plié, through battement off the ground to 45 degrees, then pushes off the ground with the supporting leg, meeting the two legs in fifth, but slightly over-crossed so the toes appear to meet in the air.  Next, the legs are released from fifth, switched in the air, and the leg that took off first, lands first, followed almost immediately by the second leg into fifth plié. The step is performed in croisé, with a slight inclination of the body towards the legs in the air.  It is like an assemblé beaten, traveling, and with the body inclined.

See video of various forms of brise.
