Pas de trois. French term usually referring to a dance in ballet between three people. Typically a Pas de trois in ballet consists of 6 parts - ⁕The Entrée ⁕Variation for the 1st dancer ⁕Variation for the 2nd dancer ⁕Variation for the 3rd dancer ⁕the Coda Today, the most celebrated Pas de trois in the classical ballet repertory are derived from the works of the great choreographer Marius Petipa. Although the Balletmaster created many Pas de trois for the near 150 ballets he created throughout his career in Russia, only three survive - the Pas de trois des Odalisques from his revival of the ballet Le Corsaire, the Paquita Pas de trois added to his 1881 revival of the ballet Paquita, and the Pas de trois from the first act of his 1895 revival of the ballet Swan Lake.
