This is another book every ballet dancer needs to read. Even if you don't want a career in it. I will be rereading it as long as I am interested in dance. (Which is FOREVER!)

Quick read. Pleasant narrative voice that gave known and practical information on ballet. Read book to screen it before giving it to my pre-teen daughter.

Pretty good practical reference for somebody writing about ballet, and fairly inspiring to the prospective amateur dancer.
