One of the most formal and demanding genres of dance, ballet has enthralled audiences with its grace, precision, and remarkable feats of dexterity. Its early roots can be traced back to the 16 th century, when court dances were performed for Italian and French royalty. After spreading throughout Europe, ballet flourished in 19 th -century Russia, the home of some of the world's greatest dancers and choreographers. Once these dancers traveled to America in the 20 th century, ballet began to evolve as the style came in contact with the burgeoning modern dance movement. In this revised edition of Ballet , readers will learn how this precise dance form has evolved throughout the centuries through colorful photographs and illustrations and engaging text.
