A warm welcome back to this beloved classic! For decades the standard text for ballet technique, this book - first published in 1952 - presents a beginner's guide to basic movements, steps, & terminology. Written by the staff of the School of American Ballet, it builds on the Russian tradition of Anna Pavlova. The 800 masterful drawings by Carlus Dyer demonstrate proper body position, balance point, movement, & attitude of each position & step in the basic classical repertoire. As pointed out in the preface, the illustrations are more accurate than photographs could possibly be because they have been corrected & recorrected until they approximate the ideal.
