Ainsi soient-ils - Académie Royale de Danse - Netflix

The Académie Royale de Danse, founded by letters patent on the initiative of King Louis XIV of France in March 1661, was the first dance institution established in the Western world. It was an association of thirteen dancing experts whose purpose according to the preamble of the King's letters was “to restore the art of dancing to its original perfection and to improve it as much as possible”. The group was intended to codify court and character dances and to certify dance teachers by examination, but since no archives of the organization have been found, it has not been possible to evaluate in detail its activities and accomplishments. The Académie Royale de Musique, founded in 1669 as the Académie d'Opéra, was a closely related opera and ballet company, and although the two institutions never merged, members of the dance academy were also associated with the opera. Along with many other royal institutions, the dance academy ceased to exist at the time of the overthrow of the monarchy in 1789, but the opera and ballet company survived and today is known as the Opéra National de Paris.
