Where was ballet first discovered?
Ballet was never really 'discovered'. Instead, it grew and changed from what it was to what we know today. The predecessor to ballet started during the Renaissance in Italy. It then migrated to France. What we consider ballet today, however, really started in France with Louis the 14th. I'm not going to give you the entire story, but there's a really excellent history of ballet here;http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/yiannis/dance/history.html
