Welcome to my website! Ballet is a style of dance that is believed to have originated from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in Europe during the artistic and intellectual movement called the Renaissance. Catherine de Medici is accredited with the spread of ballet throughout Europe. Since then, ballet has spread around the world, evolved, and modernized. From taking classes to performing in a production, there are many ways to express yourself through dance. On this website, you will learn the types of ballet, popular productions, and the art of pointe and costumes.
