Creator Carlo Blasis 1803-1878.
Description Blasis, Carlo (1803-1878) Paris.: À la Librairie Encyclopédique de Roret, rue Hautefeuille, au coin de la rue du Battoir, 1830 Carlo Blasis wrote on the theory of dance, pantomime, and the composition of ballets. Manuel is a comprehensive survey of ballets of the early nineteenth century. He also wrote on social dancing, which he called “private dancing.” Blasis founded the Italian school of ballet technique, based on his theories of equilibrium and balance. His The Code of Terpsichore played a fundamental role in the history of ballet. The sequence of exercises he introduced in this book became the basis for modern ballet classes. The English edition was translated by R. Barton. A frontispiece of Terpsichore was engraved after Canova and there is also a portrait of Blasis. The edition contains eighteen plates of dance positions, and twenty-two engraved plates of music by Carlo, Virginia, and Teresa Blasis.
