Ballet Classes In Johannesburg Bedfordview

Ballet began around 1459 in Italy and is one of the oldest formal styles of dance. Terms such as “ballet” and “ball” stem from the Italian word “ballare,” which means “to dance.”

This beautiful genre of dance was invented by King Louis XIV to be performed at a royal wedding during this time. Since its beginnings, ballet has evolved and progressed and gained mass popularity around the world. Ballet is an incredibly elegant form of dance which follows seven main principles:

– Posture
– Turn out
– Moving correctly
– Balance
– Classical technique
– Transferring Weight
– Coordination

Though ballet is a disciplined style of dance, lots of fun can be had in a ballet class and with a variety of benefits such as improved posture and concentration, it is no wonder that this is one of the most popular dance genres around.

Not only this, but almost all dance genres performed today have stemmed from classical ballet and thus incorporating a ballet class into your dance training can yield fantastic improvements in your technique within other areas of dance.
