Wonderful Book

My daughter found this book to be a wonderful read and packed with advice and suggestions she understoond and thought were important. I recomend this to anyone with a young or tween dancer.

perfect gift for a young dancer

I bought this book for my daughter who teaches dance in Brisbane Australia. I thought it was a great idea for an encouragement award at the end of the year for one of her young students. No only is it a book on dance but a book on life and the secrets of a happy life. Beautifully presented and illustrated. My daughter loved it and has put it away for the end of the year. Thanks.

Ballet is Life

A lovely gift for the young ballerina (8 to 12), this book captures the many ways ballet training can be applied to life's challenges. The young dancers who illustrate the text are beautiful examples of School of American Ballet style. And who better to reflect on the teachings of Balanchine than master ballet teacher Suki Schorer. Her optimistic, life-affirming insights into how to bring the basics of the barre to the center stage of life will be inspiring for young girls who love ballet. I only wish the credits had included the names of the ballet students who posed for these charming photos.
