Where did the word "adage" come from?


Recommended Posts

Hello, since many of you seemed to like my post about the history of the words "dance" and "pirouette", I have started a weekly series of ballet etymologies on my website. Today we start with "adage", and you'll be surprised to learn where it came from!

Enjoy!

Thanks Katherine - that was fascinating.

 

I enjoyed looking at the film clips you included too. I much prefered Cynthia Gregory's interpretation as she acted young as well as dancing beautifully. For me the Aurelie Dupont clip just came over as a technical exercise and, however well danced, it left me cold.
