Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballet is a formalized type of dance; it is usually performed on stage as part of a ballet work which often includes mime, acting, story-telling, and is set to music. Dancers can perform either en pointe or demi-pointe; in ballet class, the dancers work either at the barre or in centre floor. A significant part of ballet terminology is in the French language, because ballet became formalized in France. The Paris Opera, originally known as the Royal Academy of Dance (founded in 1661 by King Louis XIV), features the oldest ballet company in the nation and arguably the world.show more
