One of the most graceful and elegant form of Dance, Ballet is said to have originated  in the late 15th century in courts of the Italian Renaissance. 
Soon the dance migrated to the French court around the 17th century during the reign of King Louis XIV. Thus it was actually in France that the dance found solace and picked up. No wonder all Ballet terms are in French. 
King Louis XIV said to have started the first Ballet academy, L'Academie Royale de Danse.
