Le Ballet Comique de la Reine (queen's ballet company) was the first ballet to be performed in the 1600s. It was more than five hours long!
Ballet started in the 1500's with what is considered to be the first ballet called "Le Ballet Comique de la Reine" which is French for "The Comic Ballet of the Queen".
Ballet is not considered a sport. If you think about it, only sports are in the Olympics. Ballet is an art.
Ballet first emerged in the late 15th Century Renaissance court culture of Italy. It further developed in the French court during the 17th century. The art of ballet declined after 1830, it was considered an art form again on the eve of the First World War by the Ballet Russes. information from Wikipedia

A ballet section was considered essentail in nearly all early opera, often on equal terms with the singing, in later years (about 1850 or so ) it diminished to the degree of the ballet section being there just to employ the dancers insted of giving them the night off.
Ballet is mostly considered as an art form. Which makes quite sense because people most likely go to ballets to see a show, not just people trying to win. Ballet is not about winning.
Great American ballet companies are a matter of opinion. Yet, the New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theater, Pacific Northwest Ballet, San Fransisco Ballet, Miami City Ballet, Boston Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Oregon Ballet, and other smaller-tier companies are considered at the top!
Wait, what the H**l do you mean? "Who was the first TO DANCE ballet?" or "WHAT was the first ballet?" The first ballet (at least ever recorded) was "Le Ballet Comique de la Reine." And as for the first ever to dance... well, that hasn't been put on record either. Sorry...
Ballet first came from Italy.
Pyotor Illyich Tchaicovsky was technically the russian founder of ballet music in that he brought the music off the ballroom dance floor and onto the stage by writing intricate, complex masterpieces which thus inspired more intense, complex dances; before he did this, ballet music was seen as something demeaning for a composer to write as the music was second to the dance, as opposed to being valued equally. Typically, before this, ballets were considered "fillers" in operas, interjected into the performance to make room for costume changes and the like. Tchaicovksy's first ballet was "Swan Lake", which is also considered the first ballet piece to be composed by a symphonic composer.
