Where's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Ballet Vocabulary when you need it?

Yesterday afternoon after dance class #3, L came waltzing into the living room repeating something that sounded like "pon-say". She stood before me and seemed to bending at her knees while saying this strange-sounding word with a huge smile pasted across her face.

"What?" I asked her. So she repeated the word even louder, because obviously it makes more sense if you say it with more volume.

Curious as to what those teachers were actually teaching my daughter, I asked her to show me some other things they did in class. L's favorite is obviously the "beach ball" which is where you hold your arms out in front of you as if you were holding...a beach ball. And no, I didn't need the Ballet Vocabulary book to understand that one.

I did ask her about "fondue" and "ravioli" from the last class and she looked at me like I was crazy. I guess my hearing was affected by my growling stomach after all.
