Ballet: A Graceful Narration (1)

The ballet seems at last to have found a home in New York, and to have become one of the permanent institutions of the great city.

"Today's ballet repertoire offers great variety. New ballets and reconstructions and restagings of older ballets coexist with new works created by modern-dance choreographers for ballet companies. Choreographers experiment with both new and traditional forms and styles, and dancers constantly seek to extend their technical and dramatic range." (1)

The benefits of ballet include improving strength, flexibility, grace, poise, self-esteem and knowledge of an art form and body movement.
