Claude Balon facts for kids
Claude Balon (also Ballon, often incorrectly named Jean; 1671–1744) was a French dancer and choreographer. The ballet term ballon is sometimes said to be derived from his name, but Robert Greskovic calls this "dubious". Balon danced under the tutelage of the balletmaster Pierre Beauchamp at the Paris Opera. Marie Sallé is identified as a student of Balon's.
