Ballet is a form of European theatrical dance, in which trained dancers perform precisely choreographed performances, often (but not always - ballet can be abstract) to describe a narrative and usually accompanied by music.
Pointe dancing was not known until the middle of the 18th century, when the Italian dancer Marie Taglioni rose to the tips of her toes (now called pointe work or sometimes toe dancing) in La Sylphide, choreographed by her father Filippo.
