Ballet Heart Box
This pink and white heart-shaped musical treasure box features a hinged lid, inside mirror, pink flocked paper lining, and a compartment with plenty of space for special keepsakes. Enchanting images of ballet slippers and dancers practicing different positions border the side, while a young girl in her tutu holding a bouquet of flowers adorns the top.
Wind up the box, open the lid, and a small ballerina figurine begins to twirl to the delightful music of Swan Lake.

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
