    A Great Reference Guide That'll Keep You On Your Toes!

    First published in 1950, this ballet reference guide has stood the test of time. Who's it for? Ballet students and teachers, choreographers, or any ballet enthusiast. Here's what the book covers: <BR/><BR/>-descriptions and definitions of over 1100 ballet steps (in alphabetical order) <BR/>-how to say the darn words (worth the price of the book alone!) <BR/>-illustrations showing you body positions for the more common ballet steps and movements <BR/>-cross-references to other names for similar steps/positions that vary from the Russian, French and Italian schools <BR/><BR/>A must have book that can easily be toted around, I doubt most readers will regret buying it. Other ballet resources I recommend include The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution for practitioners who have trouble with their feet.

    Crucial reference!

    I had this book back when I was studying for my pre-pointe tests, and it helped me learn and remember the terminology that I needed, along with my teachers. Now I am teaching a pre-pointe class, and have asked my students to purchase the book. I always keep this book in my dance bag, and pull it out every once in a while for use in teaching to give my students a thorough education. I reccomend this for all ballet dancers and all ballet teachers! It's a terrific reference.
