It didn't take more than just the introduction to get me excited about this book. Though I never danced at the same level as Ms. Homans, I studied ballet for 11 years, and briefly taught ballet and lyrical dance until my back gave out. Her introduction discusses how ballet is passed on through the memories of one generation of dancers to the next - exactly as I used to explain to my students. She puts into words what I have always felt about ballet in my heart, muscles and bones. She has put together a history of the dance that was sorely needed, written by someone that has experienced it intimately.

This is a work of savor with repeated reading and leisurely transit. The history is comprehensive and informed on many levels. I did a fast initial read but I am now reading it slowly. I am learning more about something I very much enjoyed during my youth. I will write another review later.
