    A young Indian girl practices Ballet dance at Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Delhi.nnBallet is a type of performance dance that originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century and later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia.

    It has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology.

    It has been globally influential and has defined the foundational techniques used in many other dance genres.

    Ballet requires years of training to learn and master, and much practice to retain proficiency.

    It has been taught in ballet schools around the world, which have historically used their own cultures to evolve the art.nnThe 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.

    In 1661 Louis founded the Académie Royale de Danse (Royal Dance Academy) which was charged with establishing standards for the art of dance and the certification of dance instructors.

    In 1672, following his retirement from the stage, Louis XIV made Lully the director of the Académie Royale de Musique (Paris Opera) in which the first professional ballet company, the Paris Opera Ballet, arose.

    This origin is reflected in the predominance of French in the vocabulary of ballet.

    Early ballets preceded the invention of the proscenium stage and were performed in large chambers with the audience seated on tiers or galleries on three sides of the dance floor.nnSource : WikipediannThis footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.
