The '''Pied en l'air gauche''' is the position in which a left foot [[kick]] is finished as described by [[Thoinot Arbeau]] in ''[[Orchesography]]''. Pictured is the higher position of a left foot kick, sometimes differentiated as [[grve gauche]]; [[Arbeau]] states that in the '''Pied en l'air gauche''' the foot barely leaves the ground, and only goes a bit forward (or else not at all) while the [[grve gauche]] is a much higher kick. It is not known which pieds en l'air are supposed to be done without the foot going forward, so in general "kick" is not an entirely satisfactory translation.
