A balance with a spring is normally quite good, and if you hold an arabesque for long enough, that should be classed as quite artistic. A grand jete, pite jetes,(if they are used at the right time, it can make your dance look very good!) fish leap, a fish leap is a rhythmic gymnastics term, were one has jumped into the air, back leg bent to touch your head, and front leg tucked inwards. While doing a fish leap, your head can be either bent back or kept upright, but to be more advanced, you should keep your head upright. This may need some time, and requires flexibility.

There are a number of moves in Ballet including the five basic positions. The moves include "Jeté" which is literally "throw" in French, Fish Dive, Arabesque, Pas De Deux, Cabriole, Divertissement, Retiré and demi-pilé meaning bent knees.

The first position involves the person stands with his or her hands folded towards oneself, the second position involves the person standing with legs and hands apart, the third position has one hand folded on the chest and the other extended outwards, the fourth has one foot in front of the other one hand extended and the other raised over the head in an arch. The Grand Jeté has the dancer jumping with legs split and hands raised, Grand Pilé involving both knees bent and hands folded forward, the Arebesque has one leg raised and hands spread out. The Tondue has one leg ahead of the other, one hand raised and one hand stretched out.

Pas de deux isn't a move. It is a name for a section of ballet where 2 dancers dance with each other. Third position isn't used in ballet (except for the beginner 7 year old classes) because it is a transition for the very young until they can do 5th position.

Nothing like copy and paste. (lol)

There are many types of advanced ballet moves.  You could try fouette's or jetes.  You could also try barrel turns where you start with a shenae and go into the next turn and jump into the air with your front and back legs in attitudes.  You should be spotting the ground every time and you can do these continuously.

Ballet is the main type of dance. This means that if you know the names of ballet moves, you know jazz, modern, tap, and some hip-hop words too! Here are some basic ones...plié, tendu, dégagé, rond de jambe, port de bra, fondu, frappé, retiré, developpé, and battement. Those are the basics, they are usually used together to make the moves you see in the ballet.
