I am a ballet teacher and now sell this book in our school ballet shop. It has been a real hit with the dance students. I am very pleased with the information in it as well as the beautiful, soft drawings. They would make lovely paintings. Ms. Isadora really knows her subject and has captured the positions and nuances of children in ballet. She also knows all the technical information which reflects her years of training and professional work. I think this would be a wonderful book to give any child interested in ballet.
