Overview

Edwin Denby, The Nation
With a precision unparalleled in any other book of its kind, The Classic Ballet presents a lucid text, and nearly six hundred drawings describe and illustrate in minute detail the proper body position, balance point, movement, and attitude of each position and step in the basic classical repertory.
As George Balanchine wrote in his preface: There are no shortcuts to great dancing, but what is necessary to remember and unalterable in its instruction may be found in this book . . . An admirable source of reference for the highest standard of practice. It is an invaluable tool for the student or teacher of ballet as well as a must-have treasure for the balletomane."
