What does pique mean in ballet?

Pique means "to prick". There are different kinds. At the barre they are used, like little quick taps of the tip of the toe with a fully extended and pointed leg. The accent is up, much like pricking someone with a pin. It's not a stab, but a quick tap. In center they can be used differently. Pique turns, difficult to describe, but you push/slightly jump to an extended leg, to the ball of the foot or pointe, and turn. Also a pique can be a pique arabesque, same idea as the turn but it goes to an arabesque. I have taught ballet for 10 years and was a professional for 11. I have seen and done too many to count.

What is the difference between fouettes and pique turns?

Fouette turns are done in one stationary position, and pique turns are usually done travelling. Also, in a fouette turn, the working leg does not ever touch the ground, whereas the working leg in a pique turn goes down to the floor between each turn. They are two completely different turns, but these are some basic differences. Also, fouettes are much more difficult, haha.
