World IA Day Philadelphia – Backstage: How Invisible Architecture Contributes to a Ballerina's Success

When we think of ballet, we are usually thinking of art and for some people, an opportunity to catch a nap. The world of ballet is architected to allow the dancer to focus fully on their craft instead of the moments, or movement, throughout their day. The nested structure of the day’s activities create an invisible architecture which the dancer relies on for their health and the advancement of their skill and craft.

This invisible architecture has worked so well for the dancers and companies, that it has been applied to all 6 major ballet methods used throughout the world. We will examine what that architecture is and how it has contributed to the success of the dancers.
