Penché, Penchée

Penché, or penchée – A lean of the body. In arabesque penchee, the body leans forward towards the floor, as the leg extends higher behind the dancer.  The distance between the back and the working leg should be maintained, thus the body may only lean forward as high as the leg behind the dancer will allow.
