HISTORICAL OVERVIEW

Historians recognize that ballet, at that time, dance for the courts, originated at a dinner party for the Duke of Milan in Italy during the year of 1489.

Indeed the word ballet comes from the Italian word balletti... meaning, to dance.

Modern dance developed at about the same time in America and Central Europe, and was unlike classical ballet because it had no traditional vocabulary of movement from which dancers and choreographers could draw steps. 
It was freshly invented.


By the 16th Century, ballet became popular in Italy, France and Russia. And as it developed, France became the creators of genuine ballet dance and terminology.

Throughout the centuries and around the globe, classical and modern dance have been met by enthusiastic audiences of all ages.

Today, inspired by the music, idea, period and purpose of the piece, traditional and contemporary ballet have brought together talented choreographers and dancers whom,
as artists, share their dedication to ballet.
