TRANSCRIPT

<ul><li> 1. History The history of ballet began in the Italian Renaissance courts of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It quickly spread to the French court of Catherine de' Medici where it was further developed. The creation of classical ballet as it is known today occurred under Louis XIV, who in his youth was an avid dancer and performed in ballets by Pierre Beauchamp and Jean-Baptiste Lully. </li></ul> <p> 2. Ballet was originally developed in the 1600s in France. There is not one, main style. The style tends to be dictated by the country it originated from. (Russian ballet is more forceful, while French ballet is more graceful and fluid) Ballet terms (such as arabesque) are mostly of French origins. The first Prima Ballerina Assoluta (considered the highest honor bestowed on a dancer) was Pierina Legnani (Russian). She was famous for performing 32 fouettes in a row. . 3. Etymology The word ballet comes from the French and was borrowed into English around 1630. The French word in turn has its origin in Italian balletto, a diminutive of ballo (dance) which comes from Latin ballo, ballare, meaning "to dance",[1][2] which in turn comes from the Greek "" (ballizo), "to dance, to jump about 4. Styles Classical ballet is based on traditional ballet technique and vocabulary. There are different styles of classical ballet that are related to their areas of origin, such as French ballet, Italian ballet and Russian ballet. 5. Neoclassical ballet is a ballet style that conforms to classical ballet technique and vocabulary, but deviates from classical ballet through such differences as unusually fast dance tempos and its addition of non-traditional technical feats. 6. Cinderella is a very popular story due to its making into a movie by Disney. It was actually a ballet before the movie. The ballet was written by a famous composer by the name of Prokiev. Children can play roles in this ballet (they are typically casts as the fireflies). Now well listen to a track from the CD of the ballet. See if you can get a feel for what is going on. What is the mood? 7. Leotards (usually black, or another solid color) Tights (usually ballet pink, but sometimes a skin tone) Warm up clothing (consists of leggings and dance sweaters) Warm-up clothing is tight fitting so that the teacher is still able to visibly assess whether the dancers are in form. </p>
