It was during The Renaissance Period that ballet was first created. The very first endorsed ballet was that of “Le Ballet Comique de la Reine” which was performed to the court of Catherine de Medicini on October 15, 1581. The ballet was extravagant, expensive and enduring. Lasting over five hours, plus the King and Queen participated in the performance too.

It was a time of heavy costumes and extravagant jewellery. The works were construed of small jumps, curtsies and slow turns.

What do we have from the Renaissance Period that has survived how ballet has changed over time? The establishment of the five basic foot positions. Those core foot positions that we learn to perfect at such a young age were used in the same way back then.
