Ballet wasn't really invented in one place... what we know as

ballet today was developed over a period of hundreds of years from

a combination of social dancing and theatrical performance in

various parts of Western Europe. But in France, under Louis XIV

(around 1650 to 1715) , it got a big boost as the king was a fan

and practitioner of ballet.
