  2. ["bourr�e step," the bourr�e being an old folk dance]. This term has at least two meanings. 1. One of the simplest connecting steps, used to link other steps in a combination. The commonest form is probably the pas de bourr�e dessous. Assume your right foot is in front: left foot on half pointe; step on it and put your weight on it; move the right foot to the side, transfer your weight to it (also in relev�); move the left foot to the front of the right and put your weight on both feet in a pli�. 2. (properly called pas de bourr�e couru, "running pas de bourr�e"). A gliding movement by a dancer on pointe consisting of many very small steps taken with the feet close together. When a dancer uses bourr�e as a verb ("Then you bourr�e downstage"), she usually means pas de bourr�e couru.
