Shared booklist

Dance books: Ballet

Dance is fast becoming one of Canada’s most beloved past times. “Dance Books” are a series of lists focusing on various dance genres. Ballet originated in Renaissance Italy, but didn’t truly thrive until it was later brought to France by Catherine de Medici. The revival period was in the 1800s when it was brought to Russia, and since has seen massive globalization.
