Ballet dance types: Romantic Ballet

Romantic Ballet is a ballet dance style in which the ideas of Romanticism influenced the creation of ballets. This era happened from early to the mid 19th century at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique and Her Majesty's Theatre. Romantic Ballet had a slow decline. Saint-Léon's, ballet Coppélia is the last work of the Romantic Ballet. The works of Romantic Ballet focused on conflicts between man, nature and the society. The decline of male dancer and the rise of ballerina started in this era. Ballerina became the central part of ballet.
