This cute two-year-old boy was watching his older sister’s ballet class, and everyone could see he really wanted to join in. Fortunately a week later, the ballet teacher began offering classes for toddlers, so now little Ýmir also takes ballet.

For Ýmir and his sister to become professional ballet dancers would require years of training. Ballet is a beautiful, traditional art form that dates back to the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century. It later developed into a concert performance dance in France and Russia, and has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology.
