Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
Ballet School is, by its own account, a reference book, and in many ways an attractive one, of the visually distinctive sort that DK Publishing does well, crammed with really striking photographs, by David Handley, of attractive young dancers, boys and girls both. The photographs also illustrate the rudiments of ballet in a useful and instructive way. — Adam Liptak
Publishers Weekly
Filled with inviting photographs of six bright-eyed girls and boys at work in a sunny studio, the oversize Ballet School lets readers sit in on classes at a formal ballet school, from the first day to the end-of-the-year performance. The text, organized around the experiences of a girl named Jamie, combines a personable tone with lots of information. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Starting something new can be a little intimidating, and having a helping hand is always welcome. This book provides a very personal helping hand for those of us who want to start ballet lessons. Our journey begins with an introduction to Jamie, a little girl who is going to ballet class for the first time. For the rest of the book we participate with Jamie, sharing her day and feeling very much a part of her experience. Each double spread introduces us to a new component of the ballet class. We are told what we will need to take to class, what to expect once we are there, what kinds of exercises and moves we will practice, and why classes are managed the way they are. We also learn about the performances, and even a little about the costumes and makeup. This is a comforting and friendly companion to take along on a first venture into the world of ballet. The photographs show smiling faces and children (both boys and girls) enjoying themselves and making friends. As a guide to the newcomer to ballet, this book offers reassurance and much information. 2003, Dorling Kindersley,
— Marya Jansen-Gruber
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Told from the perspective of a child who is nervous about her first lesson, this lively introduction to ballet covers everything from warm-up to performance. Large, captivating photographs show a group of young dancers hard at work and convey their enthusiasm and excitement. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
