This study compares temporal, vertical force and postural sway variables between novice and intermediate dancers performing echappé relevé en pointe (a); to determine the influence of experience on intra-individual variability on the aforementioned performance parameters (b). Six trials performed by four novice and four intermediate dancers on a force platform were analysed. Large differences between the two groups of dancers were observed in the duration of the transition phase from the plié to the en pointe and in the length of sway path of the CoP during the en pointe phase. High loading rate was recorded when landing en pointe. Both groups of dancers showed a relatively large rate of intra-individual variability that can be seen as a task-relevant learning facilitator factor.
