Bharucha's School of Ballet
Ballet Dancing has existsted and been performed all over Europe and Russia for the past 200 years. It began in the Tzar of Russia's court, where inspired by its ethereal beauty, it spread to France. King Louise the VI, elevated it to a Court Dance, and so it got formal recognition. It is for this reason that Ballet is scripted in French, and the terminology is French. Ballet dancing aims to create a fairy like visual, using the human body as the point of beauty. The graceful leaps and jumps, the dancing on the tips of your toes all create an airiness, and the effect of flying. However, there are prescribed exercises, and training programmes which enable the dancers to bring about this beauty. Ballet training encompasses bodily strength, excessive grace and balance, coupled with flexibility and fluidity. It is an alround training of the body.
