The Romantic Ballet as we know it today began to emerge in Paris in the 1830s. Marie Taglioni, Fanny Elssler, Carlotta Grisi and Fanny Cerrito originated roles whose names are still familiar to ballet lovers. The graceful little paper doll dancer wears costumes based on portraits of the famous four first dancers of the Romantic Ballet. A color key is included for each of the black and white designs.
