With highly technical movements and a particular vocabulary, various forms of ballet have evolved over the centuries, including Russian, French, Italian, contemporary, neoclassical, and Romantic. When most think of ballet, they are likely imagining Romantic ballet, a classic style that traditionally features women who have mastered precise, fluid acrobatic motions and pointe work. However, there are three common kinds of ballet: classical, contemporary, and neoclassical. Audiences love the graceful movements, and ensembles like the New York City Ballet frequently hold sold-out performances. Among the most popular productions are Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
