Ballerina – The Background
Ballerina Party Supplies are based on ballerina (Italian for female dancer). Actually, ballerina is a title used to describe a lead female professional ballet dancer in a large group. In French, a ballerina is called danseuse. A lead male professional ballet dancer in a large company is called a ballerino (Italian) or danseur (French).
The word, Ballet, originated from the Latin word ballare that means “to dance”. The word balletto in Italian is a diminutive of ballo that means dance. Ballet was adopted in French from Italian language. And in 17th century, was borrowed by English language.
Nowadays, any female ballet dancer is now commonly called a ballerina. But in the earlier days, this title was given only to the most exceptional female solo performers and was the highest rank. The rank would start with Corps de ballet and then Coryphée, and then Sujet and finally Prima ballerina (also called première danseuse or première sujet. The male ranking system for ballet performers used to start with Corps de ballet, then Coryphée, then Sujet, then Premier danseur and lastly Premier danseur noble.
The Italian ballet masters of the early Romantic Ballet used to bestowed the title or rank of prima ballerina assoluta on a ballerina who was considered to be exceptionally talented and better dancer that the standards of other leading ballerinas. Today, the title is rarely used, and is used to recognize a ballet dancer who pursues ballet dancing as a career. The title is now used as an honor or respect given to internationally renowned dancers, not a rank.
Ballet is a form of dance, but unlike many other dances, it is formalized. This dance is known to be originated in the 15th and 16th centuries in the Italian Renaissance courts. It became popular very quickly and reached the French court of Catherine de’ Medici. There it was developed even further. At the time of Louis XIV in the 17th century Ballet wad arranged into a systematic code. This codification of the dance made it more popular and elegant. And here the predominance of French in the vocabulary of ballet took place. At this time, ballet got started getting associated closely with opera. From here, Ballet spread to other nations. In the 1740s, the Imperial Ballet of the Russian Empire and the Royal Danish Ballet were founded. And then Ballet quickly spread around the world.
The styles of ballet continued to develop in the 20th century. Some choreographers helped it change into broader concert dance. Neoclassical ballet was developed by George Balanchine in the United States. Contemporary ballet and post-structural ballet can be seen in the work of choreographer William Forsythe in Germany.
Soon, new Ballet companies were formed and are still being formed: London’s The Royal Ballet in 1931, the San Francisco Ballet in 1933, American Ballet Theatre in 1937, The Australian Ballet in 1940, the New York City Ballet in 1948, the National Ballet of Canada in 1951, and recently the Delhi Ballet in 2002.
Ballerina Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Ballerina Birthday Party Supplies. It includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Ballerina Kids Party Supplies. It has much more items than the Ballerina Basic Pack. The Ballerina deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Ballerina Kids Birthday Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Ballerina Party Pack Add-On. It contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Ballerina Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
