#### Transcript of Newton's Laws of Motion: Ballet

Ballet Newton's Laws of Motion First Law of Motion Newton's first law of motion says that an object in motion will remain in motion until it acted upon by an unbalanced fore. An object at rest will remain at rest, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

The dancer continues turning until the combined friction of the ground and her shoe stop the turn. Second Law of Motion The second law of motion says the greater the mass of an object, the greater the force is needed to accelerate it. Force = Mass (Acceleration)

The greater the force a dancer uses to push
herself around in a turn, the more
revolutions she will make. Newton's Third Law of Motion Newton's third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

As the dancer pushes on the floor, the floor pushes back, allowing the dancer to leap off of the floor. Ballet Ballet is a form of dance which originated in Italy during the 1500s, then later developed in France and Russia. Louis XIV of France was an dancer himself, and created the Académie Royale de Danse (Royal Dance Academy) in Paris, from which the first ballet company, The Paris Opera Ballet, originated. The universal terminology of ballet was created by teachers at the Royal Dance Academy.
All dancers attend many classes per week, where they work on their technique and learning new choreography, in addition to rehearsals if they are performing in a show.
