Description

“Like Water for Chocolate” Diamondpointes Ballet Shoe

Diamondpointes Ballet Shoes are unique, upcycled works of art inspired either by celebrated characters in famous ballets or by the romantic city of Paris where the concert form of ballet first began. Diamondpointes have been stripped, cleaned, dyed, painted, glued, sewn, bedazzled, lined, and glittered to bring out their beauty once again.

Diamondpointes make exquisite gifts for ballet lovers or collectors of unique art. They come in a golden yellow organza bag with a designed, titled, and numbered tag, and each includes a stand for display.

Like Water for Chocolate is a captivating ballet that masterfully brings to life the heart-wrenching love story from Laura Esquivel’s beloved novel. Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, this three-act production weaves magic realism, passion, and Mexican-inspired art onto the stage.

History

Ballet

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.
