A Ballet Dance
Ballet is an elite form of dance with precise, flowing acrobatic movements. What makes a ballet routine different from other forms of dance? Dancing enpointe or on the tips of the toes is probably the highlight of any piece of ballet. This is ensured by wearing pointe shoes, with a box or a reinforced toe area to the shoe.
Contemporary ballet is an off shoot of the formal classical ballet. h is a dance form influenced by both classical ballet and modem dance and involves a combination of potpie work and free dance movements.
Ballet dancing requires much foot muscle movement and suspension on the toes. Ballet dancers need sufficient strength in their feet, ankle, leg, knee, and abdomen and strong technical skills. Most ballets are performed without vocals to the accompaniment of orchestral music. To ably convey the story and plot through actions and facial expressions, each dancer, apart from acquiring strong dancing skills needs to be adept in mime and acting.
A wonderful lightness, filled with poise and grace, lie at the heart of any good ballet routine. It is no wonder then that a ballet dance is at times referred to as poetry in motion.
