Best Answer

No. To turn in German is drehen, walzen (as in the waltz), wenden, rotieren.

The etymology of the word "Ballet" is related to the art form's history. The word ballet comes from the French and was borrowed into English around the 17th century. The French word in turn has its origins in Italian balletto, a diminutitive of ballo (dance). Ballet ultimately traces back to Latin ballare, meaning to dance.
