Ballet rose to become one of the performing arts in the royal courts of
ITALY during the Renaissance period. The early steps of the dance were
simply derivations of the polite court dances of the time, and costumes were
nothing like we see on stage today during a traditional ballet performance.
Women in particular were hampered by the fact that they had to wear formal
gowns that reached right down to their dainty ankles. It would have been
difficult to achieve a high graceful leap in one such. Early ballet was also
linked by a narrative which provided the missing parts of the action - and
each new act was delivered along with a different course on the menu. This
led to many early ballet performances stretching over many hours for the
weary dancers. Over time, of course, ballet has emerged as more
professional, less elaborate, shorter, and minus the accompanying menu, and
become the displays of delicate grace, strength and beauty we see on our
stages today.

Ballet spread from Italy to France with the help of Catherine de' Medici,
where ballet developed even further under her aristocratic influence
