TRUE! (And very cool!)
Ballet originated in 15th century Italy, as a dance interpretation of fencing. By the 17th century, ballet had spread to France where it became a staple in the court of Louis XIV. By the mid-19th century, ballet had spread to Denmark and Russia, where it was further refined. By the 20th century, ballet continued to develop and influence other forms of dance. Multiple styles such as contemporary ballet and post-structural ballet also developed.|
Found this video on youtube set to the music of the matrix with 100,000+ hits. Skateboarding found a nice little niche making videos of cool moves set to music, it seems like that might be a way for fencing to make some great stuff that would appeal to a wider audience.
Seeing cool fencing moves edited well and set to music seems like something that a lot of people could enjoy and would watch.(Would be cool if at all big national competitions there was a highlight package made set to music…so who is going to do that?)
And a question for you guys:
TimMorehouse I think our sport needs a special name for tweets about fencing…Suggestions?
