History of Ballet Detail

There is much debate about the exact roots of the Ballet dance. Some trace it back to the 17th century and some say that the dance originated in the 15th century Renaissance courts. The term “ballet” or “ball” is derived from the Italian word ‘ballare’, that is, ‘to dance’ and therefore signals towards its Italian Renaissance origin.

Dance was eminent in the marriage ceremonies and other lavish events and parties of noblemen and women. The dance steps were taught by masters to the nobility and the members of high society participated in music and dance so as to create a spectacle during these events.

In the 16th century, King Henry II of France took in an Italian noblewoman as his wife. This lady, Catherine de Medici was patron of the arts and introduced ballet in the French court. The spread of ballet was further alleviated when King Louis IV, who had a deep love for the art, started encouraging amateur ballerinas to take up professional training. In 1661, Paris saw its first dance academy and two decades later, the ballet moved on to the stage and became performance art. This could be seen as the beginning of the opera-ballet tradition that is characteristic of France.

The nineteenth century saw the Romantic Movement, which greatly influenced the dance style. The Romantic themes such as passivity of women and supernatural elements are reflected in the ballets of the era. Dancing on the toes (known as pointe work) and the romantic tutus was also introduced in this time period. In the latter half of the century, the romantic tutu evolved to the shorter and classical tutu alongwith developments in movements and choreography.

Today, ballet has evolved and is not restricted to the confines of classical ballet form and story. A long process of experimentation has led to an intertwining of classical forms and stories with the contemporary choreographic innovations to create what we know today as modern ballet.
