Ballet technique is considered to be the basis of training for all types of dance. Ballet originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century and since then it has changed dramatically to fit the picture of ballet that people have today. Ballet requires perseverance and hard work and correct training and time is what makes a great dancer.
Ballet symbolises strength, resilience, elegance and grace all at once. Ballet can be studied at any age. Girls who study ballet develop strong bodies, spatial and temporal awareness, and improve their coordination. Its proven that girls retain the flexibility brought about by ballet throughout their adult lives.
