Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This clearly written and beautifully illustrated book, first published in the 1950s, introduces the young dancer to the basic concepts of ballet.  It defines the art form, shows the five positions, the seven movements, the carriage of the arms, the pliés, the role of the composer and choreographer and more.  A Childs Book of Ballet includes a glossary of ballet terms and throughout the text the terms are highlighted, so the young reader can more easily remember them.

A Childs Book of Ballet also features a brief history of ballet, its costumes and the world of ballet shoes.  Woven throughout the text are lovely illustrations of boys and girls at practice and in performance.
