Click the purple STAR below to register for Ballet and our other fun dance classes! The History of Ballet Ballet began during the Renaissance around the year 1500 in Italy. In fact, the terms "ballet" and "ball" as in masked ball, come from the Italian word "ballare", which means "to dance". During its infancy, ballet dance steps consisted of curtsies, promenades, turns, small hops and slides. Ballet dancers wore much different clothing than today. Ballet shoes had small heels and resembled formal dress shoes. Dancers wore masks, layers of brocaded costuming, pantaloons, large headdresses and various ornaments. French King Henry II's wife Queen Catherine, introduced early dance styles into court life in France. The vocabulary of ballet gradually developed in French over the next century. Court dances grew in opulence, size and grandeur to the point where performances were presented on elevated platforms so that a larger audience could watch. Even the king himself, Louis XIV, performed many of the popular ballet dances. In time, professional dancers were hired to perform at court functions. Ballets in Russia and France developed their own character, personality and style with Russia becoming a leading center of ballet by the mid-nineteenth century. Pointe developed during the early part of the nineteenth century. Pointe dancing was reserved for women only and inspired ballet choreographers to include a romantic heroine in many ballets. By the early twentieth century, the Russian theatre producer Serge Diaghilev brought together some of Russia's most talented dancers, choreographers and composers to form Ballet Russes. Diaghilev's Ballet Russes toured Europe and America, presenting numerous ballets. By the 1930's Ballet had grown in popularity in the United States. During that time, several of Diaghilev's dancers left to settle in the U.S. Of these, George Balanchine is one of the best known artists. Balanchine firmly established ballet in America by founding the New York City Ballet.
