Ballet is a performance dance that originated in the 15th century during the renaissance period. Later influences from Russia and France helped develop it further into a concert dance form. It is now refined into a highly technical form of dance with its own terminology and vocabulary based on the French language.  The foundational techniques learned in ballet instruction are used  in many other dance genres. To achieve proficiency in ballet requires years of training, practice and dedication. 

The art of ballet is fully alive through the efforts of the National Ballet of Canada which was established as a classical company by Celia Franca in 1951. The National Ballet presents a range of traditional productions including includes works by the 20th and 21st century masters. In addition, the ballet presents contemporary works and actively helps the development of Canadian talent by supporting the creation of new ballets and the development of Canadian choreographers.
