Pas de deux, grand Grand dance for two. It differs from the simple pas de deux in that it has a definite structure. As a general rule the grand pas de deux falls into five parts: entrée, adage, variation for the male dancer, variation for the female dancer, and the coda, in which both dancers dance and display their virtuosity together.
