What is Ballet ?
Ballet is about art, but it is also about life. Classical Ballet technique was established centuries ago in the courts of Europe, and it has been evolving ever since as dance teachers, artists and researchers refine approaches to training and add to the vocabulary of steps and movements that are unique to the ballet discipline.
Ballet dancers are fit, strong and flexible, and they are lifelong students. They take class every day of their lives to keep in shape, to maintain the quality of their style and technique, and to enjoy the community of other dancers. To be able to perform at the best of their ability, dancers need focus, commitment and a capacity for hard work.
The creation of a Ballet starts with an idea or a movement which is nurtured, tried out, modified, tried again, talked through, tried again, refined, practiced and presented, then reflected upon and finally remembered.
Ballet is exciting to do, and to watch.
