Between the first and second quarter (the third eighth), the rise stretches, foot touches the toe of the floor and the second quarter returns original position. Doubles battements tendus often combined with battements tendus simples. Example: make four battements tendus simples in the direction in the V position for two tact on 2 / 4. In the last eight of the second cycle to withdraw his foot on the II position. In the first eight third cycle lower your heels on the floor and pull the rise. At second and third eighth to do the same. Fourth-eighth - a pause: the leg maintained at the elongated toe. On the fourth cycle to repeat all the movements preceding cycle. Then a combination of repeats.
