How Ballet And Video Games Are Alike
"Ballet is, in the words of Homans, 'full of emotions and the feelings that come with music and movement.' And so are games. Ballet straddles the world of music, literature, art and performance. And so do games. And much like the way video games have struggled to separate themselves from sports, board games and toys, early ballet struggled to separate itself from music; dance was not seen as a distinct art form."
