Ballet technique would require far too much elaboration for this page. Ballet dancers typically start at around 8 years old[[note]]though classes for children younger than this are frequently called 'ballet', these focus on musicality and movement, not classical technique[[/note]] and continue training into their late teens. When not taught properly, ballet can result in crippling injuries, which is one of the reasons why lessons are considered fairly expensive. Because of the [[HollywoodPudgy pressure]] to sculpt a 'Balanchine body', the promise of a short career, racism and sexism (sometimes to the extreme), and [[TrainingFromHell intense training]], being a ballerina is not some princesslike girly sport. Dancers will perform sick and hurt, often on bleeding feet.

Today the most common 'schools' (training methods) of ballet include the Cecchetti method developed in Italy; the French or Paris Opera Ballet method out of France; the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) method developed in Great Britain; the Vaganova method developed in Russia; and the Bournonville method developed in the Netherlands.[[note]]Despite being commonly cited on this list, the Balanchine 'method' taught in the United States is not actually a training method at all but a particular aesthetic style taught by Balanchine ballet companies. Most Balanchine dancers start in another method and learn Balanchine technique later on.[[/note]] These methods are all used to varying degrees worldwide, and are not confined to the country in which they were developed.

The art of ballet is formalized performance dance that has evolved into a new concert dance. It all started during the Italian Renaissance as a dancing pantomime for fencing, much different from today's perception of the art. It developed through French courts' social dances. France's early influence is made apparent through the "vocabulary of ballet", the steps and forms with their own names. During the 18th century, its technicalities developed so that it became a dramatic art on par with {{opera}}. By the 19th century, Russia had adopted its own style and continued to train even under Soviet rule.
