In a ballet company there are four levels of dancers. At the bottom is the corps de ballet. These are like the backup dancers, they are the largest group and work as one with synchronized movements. Next are the coryphees who lead the backup dancers, perform in smaller group dances and some solo roles. Ahead of them are the soloists, who dance solo parts. At the top are the principals who dance the starring roles, aka Natalie Portman in Black Swan.
