After visiting my local dance studio I became entranced with this book. I would arrive early to stretch, and to look at the graceful lines and delicate port aux bras shown in the stunning photos. After being told I couldn't check out the book, I finally found a used copy, which I greedily devoured. There were a few pages that show correct vs. incorrect hand and feet positions which I appreciated. A favorite quote from the book, "Keeping time is not enough. Ballet is not gymnastics. If there's no music in your movement, you have only a sport." A great book for ballet inspiration.
