Quick Reference

A term loosely synonymous with classical ballet, i.e. the theatre dance which evolved from the court ballets of the 16th and 17th centuries and which was refined through the national schools of France, Italy, and Russia. Its steps, positions, and movements are codified in the danse d'école which is still taught in the daily class taken by all classical dancers.
