My first ballet book

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
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. The 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.
