Little Brother Wants to do Ballet Too


Here we have two year old Ýmir, who is watching his older sister’s ballet class. To make a long story short their wonderful teacher began offering classes for toddlers a week later, so now he also goes to ballet.

Ballet is a type of performance dance which fascinates many people around the globe. It originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century, and later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia. It has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology. It has been globally influential and has defined a foundation of techniques used in many other dance genres. Becoming a ballet dancer requires years of training. Ballet has been taught in various schools around the world, which have historically incorporated their own cultures to evolve the art.
