Adagio definition

Adagio is any type of dance that is paced to slow music.  It also refers to a section of the classical pas de deux in ballet.  (The pas de deux in classical ballet is made up of an opening adagio; a lady is supported by a man while doing turns and balances.  This is then followed by a solo by both individuals; next comes a fast coda that involves a dance by the partners together.)
