Ballet technique refers to the method by which ballet steps are performed or taught. Technique may also refer more generally to a dancer's training and ability. The core technique of ballet has only minor regional variations globally. Various training methods have been devised, these produce a different physicality of performance and aesthetic results. Ballet (especially classical ballet) puts great emphasis on the method and execution of movement.
Ballet technique can refer to the foundational principles and steps on which ballet steps are built. These foundational principles and steps include "pulling up" (a popular term used to describe proper posture and lifting the muscles so as to increase turnout, quantity and quality of turns, and proper alignment), posture, pointing the toe, and flexibility. Ballet is the most popular dance among the girls.
Edouard Borovansky (24 February 1902 - 18 December 1959) was a Czech-Australian ballet dancer, choreographer and director. After touring with Anna Pavlova's company, he and his wife settled in Australia where they established the Borovansky Ballet company. This company provided the foundation for modern ballet in Australia and was subsequently used as the basis for the first national Australian ballet company, the Australian Ballet which was established in 1962.
Borovansky choreographed several works for his company, including Vltava, Terra Australis and The Black Swan. Terra Australis was the first all-Australian ballet and focused on the subject of Australia's colonisation by white settlers.
