What is this?

Syllabus Level
ISTD: Pre-Bronze – IDTA: Pre-Bronze
The Chasse from PP is a Pre-Bronze waltz promenade figure. In older versions of the syllabus, it is referred to as a "Syncopated Chassé."

The Syncopated Chassé was introduced to the waltz syllabus as a "Named Variation" (the equivalent of Gold today),[1] and eventually made its way to the Associate Syllabus" (Bronze),[2] where it has remained ever since. At some point between the 6th and 8th Editions of the Revised Technique — most likely coinciding with the introduction of the Progressive Chasse to Right — the Syncopated Chassé was renamed Chasse from PP.[3]
