Ballet originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century. Under the influence of Italian aristocrat and Queen of France, Catherine de’ Medici, ballet later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia. It has since become a highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology. It is practiced, taught, and performed around the world, and has foundational techniques that are used in many other dance genres.
