History of Ballet

Transcript: Court ballets had predominantly Greek mythology themes and included a combination of dramatic spoken or sung dialog, music, and arranged court dances. 1800 From colonial times through the end of the 19th century, ballet dancers and choreographer found adventure and some even found fortune either through visiting or relocating to the United States. Beginning in colonial times, English theatrical companies toured major eastern coastal cities to perform. By the early 19th century, most cities east of the Mississippi River had an opera house, a theater, other hall for circuses, concerts or theatrical productions. As the boundaries of the United States moved westward, so did theatrical entrepreneurs. 1581 1845-1870 By: Jessica Vazquez! King Louis XIV of France was a dancer, producer of more than 1,000 ballets, and patron of the arts as this picture: Marie Taglioni an Italian dancer who was trained by her father, embodied the ethereal side of romanticism. Her role as the sylph in the La Sylphide (1832) made her a star. Romantic Ballets When Catherine de' Medici moved to France she brought Italian amusements and entertainments. In 1581 the queen commanded Balthasar de Beaujoyeulx, an Italian violinist at court, to produce an extravagant entertainment. Le Ballet-Comique de la Reine, which has since become considered the first ballet. 2010 1653 La Sylphide (1832) Filippo Taglioni choreographed this ballet to showcase his daughter, Marie. It ushered in the era of romantic ballet at the Paris Opera. Giselle (1841) Act I opens in a tiny Gothic village, sometime in the distant past. Giselle, an innocent peasant girl, falls in love with Albrecht, a nobleman disguised as a peasant. Forms of Ballet Entertainment! Ballet at the French Court! Of the many romantic ballets choreographed, only a few survive today. Coppelia (1870) during much of the mid-19th century, Europe was plagued with political upheaval and economic events that brought with it a new sense of reality in people's lives and on the stage, too. The ballet Coppelia acts as a bridge from romantic to classical ballet. 1600 The Pas de Quatre showcased the four divinities of romantic ballet. History of Ballet Romantic Dancers and Choreographers 1900 A CENTURY OF CONTRAST: romanticism to classicism! During the 16th and 17th centuries various forms of ballet entertainment appeared that used the steps from court dances. These amusements at court required large halls or ballrooms for dancing. - Ballet Masquerade - Ballet Pastorale - Ballet Melodramatique - Ballet Comique - Ballet de court BALLET IN THE 20TH CENTURY 1832-1841 Italian Ballet Moves to France! At the turn of the 20th century, classical ballet produced by the Russian Imperial Theatre began to change as the next generations of choreographers and dancers claimed center stage as innovators with new directions. In the first decade of the 20th century, while the Imperial Theatres continued to produce classical ballets, Sergei Diaghilev, an entrepreneur and theater director. Pas de Quatre (1845) the director of His Majesty's Theatre in London persuaded the so-called four divinities of romantic ballet, Marie Taglioni, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito, and Lucile Grahn, to perfom in a ballet.

Transcript: Post-it Notes Task 1 Global Society in a Post-Cold War World Google History Learning Site Task 2 Task 4 The fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 ended the bipolar military, political, and economic alignments that had structured life across the globe during the Cold War. In the Post-Cold War world, developing nations across Africa, Asia and the Americas struggled under a crushing burden of international debt, lack of economic development, internecine warfare, and the social impact of infectious diseases like AIDS and malaria. At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the global community faces profound challenges brought about by climate change, religious violence, and economic uncertainty. About The Post-Cold War World !!! Task 5 In June 1950, the first military action of the Cold War began when the Soviet-backed North Korean People's Army invaded its pro-Western neighbor to the south. Many American officials feared this was the first step in a communist campaign to take over the world and deemed that nonintervention was not an option. The Cold War was waged on political, economic, and propaganda fronts and had only limited recourse to weapons. How Did The Cold War Happen? Task 6 As World War II was ending, the Cold War began. This was to be a long lasting and continuing confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States, lasting from 1945 to 1989. It was called the Cold War because neither the Soviet Union nor the United States officially declared war on each other. Why was the war called the "Cold War" ? Task 7 Picture of the Cold War Soldiers Task 8 Task 9 The end of the Cold War. When Mikhail Gorbachev assumed the reins of power in the Soviet Union in 1985, no one predicted the revolution he would bring. A dedicated reformer, Gorbachev introduced the policies of glasnost and perestroika to the USSR. In late 1991 the Soviet Union itself dissolved into its component republics. With stunning speed, the Iron Curtain was lifted and the Cold War came to an end. How did the Cold War End ? Task 3 When Ronald Reagan took over the White House, the end of the Cold War not only seemed a very long way off—nobody in fact thought in such terms at the time—but in many respects it actually looked as if the USSR (and not the West) was winning. The Soviet Union had just invaded Afghanistan. Who ended the Cold War? People say that the soldiers in the cold war were fighting because of superpowers because they were the "world's strongest nations". They also said that they've fought the war of ideas. But i think its because the USSR’s dislike of capitalism. They were basically fighting because of the NSSR's beliefs. My Summary of the Cold War World Task 3
