Classical Ballet Technique, Paperback / softback Book

Classical Ballet Technique Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Susan Cook


In more than 2600 photographs, professional dancers (from such companies as the American Ballet Theatre and the Jaffrey Ballet) demonstrate in sequence every movement in the classical repertoire, from the most basic to the most advanced.

Each photograph is accompanied by a text that details appropriate teaching techniques and describes the proper execution of each step.

Warren combines the best instructional aspects of several international schools, including Soviet, Danish and English.

A glossary defines common dance terms, and a pronunciation guide provides phonetic transcriptions of French ballet terms.

A chapter specially for teachers delineates a variety of methods classroom-tested by Warren, a teacher-training expert and former professional dancer with extensive credentials.
