Pas de Deux
one of the basic dance forms in ballet. It consists of an entrée, an adagio (the lyrical part danced by both dancers), an allegro in two variations (solos by the male and female dancers), and a jointly danced coda. The ballets of P. I. Tchaikovsky provide the best examples of pas de deux.
