Russian ballet exalts in bravura; American ballet trades in speed. Danish ballet, as developed by the 19th-century choreographer and ballet master August Bournonville, is characterized by its breezy effortlessness, fluttering footwork and precise arm positions. Next week, top dancers from the Royal Danish Ballet bring a sampling of excerpts from the Bournonville classics to the Joyce Theater's stage.
