English to Spanish translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting / ballet
English term or phrase:sharp
Hi. I'm translating a movie where a ballet coreographer and professor is taking his students to task for not doing the movements properly, and the word "sharp" is used with regards to the "staccato", but I don't know how to translate it.
Professor: You are not doing the staccato where it has to go. Do you know what the staccato is?
Does anybody know if there is a specific word used in Spanish in this context? I know that in music it would be "sostenido", but I don't know if it's the same for ballet.
