- A pose on one leg with the other leg lifted either backward or forward and bent at the knee.
- A pose. As with the arabesque, the leg is raised. But unlike the arabesque, it is bent, not straight, and, also unlike the arabesque, it can be done to the front, the side, or the back. In attitude to the front or the back, if the angle is 90 degrees, the calf should be as nearly horizontal as possible. Source: Vance's Fantastic - BALLET DICTIONARY
- (geology) The relation of some directional feature in a rock to the horizontal plane. The attitude of planar features (bedding, foliations, joints, etc.) is described by the strike and the dip. The attitude of a linear feature (fold axis, lineation, etc.) is described by the strike of the horizontal projection of the linear feature and its plunge. AGI
