Today in 1581, the first ballet was performed in Paris. It had been commissioned by Catherine De Medici and was called “Ballet Comique de la Reine”. I love ballet, and so do our children. Both studied dance for many years.
The only ballets that I have seen in live performance were by the Winnipeg Ballet, which is a very fine company. We saw them perform Giselle and The Firebird. We sometimes saw dancers from the company wandering the halls of our psychology department as they went to appointments to manage their eating disorders with one of our professors, an unfortunate side effect for some dancers.
