Did you know? The History of Ballet

Balletto is Italian diminutive of the ballot, meaning to dance, to jump about.” Its vocabulary is based on French terminology.

Ballet originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century. Noblemen and women were treated to lavish events, especially wedding celebrations, where dancing and music created an elaborated spectacle. Dancing masters taught the steps to the nobility, and the court participated in the performance. One of the first ballet dancing masters was Domenico da Piacenza.
