14K Yellow Gold Bright Bella Ballet Slippers Necklace Charm
The French Ballet started in Italy. The fact is, all ballet started in Italy, sometime during the Italian Renaissance. A male dancer lifts over 1-1/2 tons worth of ballerinas during performances. Most ballerinas wear out 2–3 pairs of pointe shoes per week. One tutu costs up to $2,000 to make. The same tutu requires 60–90 hours of labor and over 100 yards of ruffle. The first ballets were danced by royalty. Royals, it seems, would dance “ballare” at their weddings and other events. One ballet performance can take up to 5,000 hours of practice. A ballet studio has 400 planks of wood. Combined, ballerinas jump 900 feet into the air during performances.
