royal danish ballet
ballet troupe founded as the resident company of the Royal Theatre of Copenhagen in 1748. It was developed principally by the ballet masters Pierre Laurent, who established the company's school in 1771; Vincenzo Galeotti (director, 1775-1816), who built its repertoire of dramatic ballets; and August Bournonville, who directed from 1829 to 1877 and for whose classic style the present company is acclaimed.
