Inspired by the classics, choreographers create new images and techniques in choreography
Ballet is a dance that very vividly reflects thought in motion, when the dancer`s body becomes like a sculpture come to life.
How much perseverance, patience, pain is sometimes required in order for the dancer's plasticity, his honed poses to become spiritual. This art is not losing its relevance to this day.
Ballet, as one of the types of stage art, originated at the end of the 15th century in Italy (see IngoDance for detailed overview), and later received its development in France, in particular, thanks to the composer and choreographer Jean - Baptiste Lully.
Any changes in society, in time, were reflected in the ballet, introducing new themes, changes in style, technique, compositions. The scenery and costumes changed. For example, the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century for ballet was a period of liberation from the formal framework limiting its manifestations. So, romanticism appeared in the works of choreographers. "Sylphide" and "Giselle" are among the first romantic ballets that have not lost their significance even today.
Beloved by many works of the brilliant composer Tchaikovsky "The Nutcracker", "Sleeping Beauty", "Swan Lake", made a real revolution in ballet art. The notorious miniature "The Dying Swan", written by Mikhail Fokin, is a very beautiful composition, many ballerinas dreamed of dancing it. The ballet "Romeo and Juliet" became the pride of S. Prokofiev. Anna Pavlova, Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya — these talented ballerinas with their skill managed to express all the spirituality inherent in the music of the composers.
The development of artistry in today's ballet has advanced to a new stage. Ballet art has become more perfect in terms of its self-expression. The language of dance has become clearer for a wider circle of fans of spiritual creativity.
Inspired by the classics, choreographers create new images and techniques in choreography, using symphonic and operatic works for the production of ballet. Rock ballets, ice dancing, opera ballet, film ballet, ballet performance accompanied by solo or choral singing are gaining popularity among the audience.
