This was a very interesting book We actually never read the whole thing, but it doesn t seem meant to be read cover to cover Instead, it s a young person s introduction to all the aspects of the ballet world, including choreography, music, costumes, and the storylines of many famous ballets My six year old son was especially interested in reading the story synopses, and all three kids liked looking through at the many photographs from ballets and ballet preparations The only real criticism I have is that it s written with the Royal Ballet as what seems like the only source of stories and photos it s not really a flaw, just a matter of scope, but it s good to point out that different ballet companies and choreographers will approach some of the aspects differently. This is an AMAZING resource for anyone who is interested in Ballet Even the pictures alone are mesmerizing From classes to the history of Ballet to famous dances, this book covers extensive detail of the art of Ballet Beautifully made, and highly recommended to anyone with interest in or love for ballet. this is a big favorite i loved loved loved this book for anyone who loves ballet this is a great book it even had me reading raven girl because i found out that the story was turned into a ballet the book tells you about ballet styles, what dancers wear different ballets ect for anyone who wants to know what being a ballerina is really all about i can t say enough on how wonderful this book is This is a beautiful book about ballet The pictures are outstanding The detail about the concept, facets and life of ballet are spot on.Unfortunately, no women of dark skin are represented in this book Ballet remains a glass ceiling career for dark skinned women and this book perpetuates the fact I wish it gave young dark skinned girls a better sense of hope by honoring a darker woman at least somewhere Two dark skinned men are depicted, but only one in a major role. This Enchantingly Beautiful Book Is The Perfect Reference Volume For Children Who Love Ballet Featuring Stunning Full Color Photos From The Royal Ballet S Own Collections And Informative, Fact Filled Entries, It Covers All Things Dance Inside, Young Readers Will Be Captivated By A History Of Ballet Through The CenturiesAn Overview Of Basic Ballet Steps, Music, And ChoreographyA Look Inside The Royal Ballet And The Royal Ballet SchoolDetails About Shoes, Tutus, Accessories, Costumes, And Most Intriguing To Passionate Young Lovers Of Dance Will Be The Exploration Of A Day In The Life Of A Professional Ballet Dancer, Images Of Beloved Performers Such As Margot Fonteyn, Darcey Bussell, And Carlos Acosta, Detailed Close Ups Of Costumes, And Photos From Iconic Performances Of The Royal Ballet More ThanColor And Black White Images Throughout Beatrice loves this because it describes many professional details in the world of The Royal Ballet The costumes are so cool.
