That said, a simple distinction is that "ballet" refers to the technique, vocabulary and traditions of classical ballet (these include such things as turnout, carriage and point work) and "dance" is a generic term for all dance movement.

So if your choreography does consist mostly of ballet steps and technique, I think it would be fair to call them ballets, but if they don't, you may wish to call them dances or compositions in order to avoid confusion.

But, as to relative weight and meaning -- are these two terms used in other countries, including the UK, as they are in the US?
