Attention dance historians and die hard ballet fans! Do you know your ballet d’action from your ballet blanc? Your Romantic from your Classical? Are you dubious on the origins of the word ballet itself (French? Or Italian?). And, just what is an entrechat? (Quote: Royal Opera House blog)

If you're scratching your head in perplexity, then you'll want to check out The Royal Ballet's "Short History of Ballet" available here. It's extremely informative and perfect for ballet lovers of all ages.
