BALLET
Originating from royal French court dances of the 1700s, Ballet evolved into the quintessential classic form of dance in which most dance forms are technique based. Ballet is meant to give an ephemeral fluid quality to the dancer. This became emphasized as Pointe shoes were introduced in the 1800s to give the audience an illusion of a floating dancer on stage. Meant to demonstrate the beauty of the human form, Ballet technique was formed to fit perfect alignment of the body and five positions of legs, arms, torso and head as well as proper leaps, turns jumps and footwork.
