Abstract

World War II not only disturbed the every day routine of life as well as social and cultural growth and development, but the growth of many art forms. Ballet was beginning to flourish prior to the war, particularly in Europe. Despite setbacks and obstacles faced, World War II was a pivotal time period that changed people's pre-conceived views on ballet and fostered an enormous spread and growth of this previously confined art. Hardships and the negative repercussions of war as well as the many positive advancements in ballet associated with wartime will be discussed.
