Ballet is a formal style of dance. It is excellent for improving agility, coordination, flexibility, grace and strength. Ballet teachers use a 'barre' (bar) for support during ballet exercise. These exercises consist of repetitive moves in a variety of set positions.
One of the most popular dance styles, ballet is best known for the "point" technique where dancers use shoes that are especially created for dancing on their toes. However, this is only one facet of ballet - one that requires a whole lot of training before the dancer masters this move.
Some of the most famous ballets include Giselle, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
