Allegro

[a-lay-GROH; Italian: al-LAY-groh].  Brisk, lively. 

A term applied to all bright and brisk movements.  All steps of elevation such as the entrechat, cabriole, assemble, jete and so on, come under this classification.  The majority of dances, both solo and group, are built on allegro.  The most important qualities to aim at in allegro are lightness, smoothness and ballon.
