The term "danseur" is a French term meaning "male ballet dancer." Just as "danseuse" is the female equivalent. And the term "ballerina" actually is an Italian phrase for the PRINCIPAL female ballet dancer. But it has since been used by now to label ANY female taking ballet. Still, just as "ballerina" is a female ballet dancer--"ballerino" is the male equivalent in Italian.
The pointe technique in ballet is used when the dancer's body weight is shifted to the foot. The dancer appears to be standing on just her toes. While some men dancers do this, the majority are women.
ballet wasn't used for a purpose it was used as a way to entertain and a way of becoming a stronger dancer today nearly all acpescts of dance revolve around ballet
Most dancers prefer to be called a ballet dancer, versus a ballerina, because the name ballerina is normally associated with pink fluffy tutus and music box ballerinas. A ballet dancer is in connotation with the elegant form of ballet. In addition, guy dancers are called ballet dancers. Another slang word for a ballet dancer (often used among dancers towards each other) is a bunhead. This is a light-hearted word that refers to how ballet dancers always wear their hair in a bun, in or outside of the studio!
a ballerina, although usually that phrase is used mostly for girls! A male Ballet Dancer is called a Ballerino
The word ballet comes from french every word used in ballet is also said in french
The most famous female ballet dancer ever was Anna Pavlova oF the Ballet Russes in the early 1900s. She was the first modern ballerina and has set the standard of what a ballet dancers body should be like that is still used today. Then came Margot Fonteyn in the 1960s. And then Sylvie Guillem of Paris Opera Ballet in the 1980s.
Ballet warmups are articles of clothing that are used to keep the body and muscles warm until the dancer's body has started a sweat and the muscles are working. Some common ballet warmups are legwarmers, shrugs, and shorts. Basically, they help prevent the dancer's from pulling a muscle.
Ballet is still very traditional with a contemporary twist added to it. But ballet is still performed traditionally too. As a dancer I like contemporary ballet best. The basics are still used in contemporary ballet and lyrical dance. Lyrical is a much more modern version of ballet with a little bit more expression.
Um yeah all the time. Yes, classical music is I think the only music used in ballet. For any other question about dance ask me as I am a talented dancer. I specialise in Hip-Hop, Ballet and Contempory.
Ballet is used, how ballet is used!
It's called a pirouette.
