Overview

My First Ballet Book by Kate Castle

Because every prima ballerina started at the beginning! Perfectly pitched text by expert author Kate Castle gives a practical guide to ballet, while specially commissioned photographs capture the magic of dance, from the excitement of a child's first class to the joy of dancing onstage and the wonder of watching a performance. Clear information about what to expect as a young dancer—from what to wear to how to perfect positions—is combined with an inspirational look ahead to the turns, leaps, and arabesques that build from these first steps. My First Ballet Book is full of hints, tips, and step-by-step instructions that will help every child make the most of his or her ballet classes.

Will not teach ballet steps but rather describe what the components of ballet are. Kept my three year old niece mesmerized. Good intro - whet her appetite. Therefore the book is a companion to a budding ballerina.

This is a good book for little girls and boys just starting out in ballet, although some of the illustrations of the various feet positions are not clear.
