Ballet Company Tickets – A Night of Sophistication
Ballet plays a critical role in a cultured society. Appreciating the art, beauty and strength required of a ballerina makes watching any performance worthwhile.
The mission of ballet companies
Most ballet companies devote themselves to artistic excellence, training and education as well as performances of classic and innovative works. Core values of inclusion, equity and diversity highlight the vision of many of today's premier ballet companies. Ballet companies see themselves as a conduit for dancers to express their unique character and personalities, celebrate different types of music and choreography and transform the lives of their audiences through their art.
Ballet originated around the year 1500 during the Renaissance in Italy and evolved from traditional masked balls. The modern-day vocabulary of ballet finds its roots during the reign of Louis XIV in France. By 1850, ballet grew in popularity in Russia, and in 1930, it blossomed in the United States thanks to the immigration of European dancers. Robert Joffrey founded The Joffrey Ballet in 1956. Joffrey himself taught, choreographed and commissioned original pieces for American dancers. This international dance company is known as the first dance company to perform at the White House, the first to be televised, the first to embrace multimedia and the first American ballet company to livestream on YouTube. Lincoln Kirstein created the New York City Ballet along with George Balanchine in 1933. The New York City Ballet trained and guided young American dancers to create a more modern repertoire of ballet performances. The 90 dancers in the company make the New York City Ballet the largest dance organization in the country.
