IMPROVED ANSWER..
There are three main styles of ballet, classical, neoclassical, and contemporary ballet. They are all ballet, although the way of performing and the vocabulary and technical aspect of them are different. Classical ballet is a more formal type and follows traditional ballet techniques. It isn't as strict and you can get away with mistakes easily. It was the beginning of pointe work and the shoe was a regular ballet slipper with a tightened tip. Neoclassical ballet, on the other hand, is decidedly more strict. The dancers often dance at faster and more difficult tempos. The spacing on stage is also more modern and organization is more varied. Contemporary ballet was influenced by classical ballet and modern dance. It takes some pointe techniques from classical ballet, although it is less strict. It is influenced by modern dance in terms of the positions of the body and how you move. George Balanchine is considered a major innovator toward the introduction of contemporary ballet.
