Why would an otherwise sane 50+ year old man take ballet classes? Let's just call it my mid-life crisis!

Fun with automated translators
When I was something like 12 I took one class in French at the YMCA. It's the only formal training I've had in the language. Trying to figure out how to string together words from ballet books without butchering the language, I decided to feed some phrases through Google's translator.
Google Translate does not speak ballet French.
For example, these phrases:
pas de bourrée dessous de côté. fondu pointe tendue effacée devant.
