Fish Dive


Definition: A fish dive is a term used to describe various lifts in pas de deux, or partnering.

To perform a fish dive, a male dancer may hold a female dancer above his head in a horizontal fish dive, or she may fall from a sitting position on his shoulder and be caught in a fish dive.

A fish dive is one of many classic poses in ballet, and is often used to conclude a combination or dance between two dancers.
