Ballet is a performance in which dancing and music tell a story without any speaking. (Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English 5th Edition) It originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century and later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia. (Wikipedia)
I think ballet is a popular object to make artworks. It shows the beauty of the human's body, and it is dolly and sculptural as well. That is the reason why ballet is popular in art world, I think. I have never danced ballet but used to play gymnastics. They have something in common with each other. I really like the dress that ballet dancers wear.
