Description: "The world had known many forms of the dance when ballet was introduced. But this was a new kind of dance that told a story in movement and pantomime, and over the years, it has become a very highly developed and exciting art form.
The more you know about ballet, the more you enjoy it. It helps to know how finished ballet production depend on the cooperative efforts of many people — producers, musicians, choreographers, ballet masters, scene designers — in addition to the dancers. It also helps to know that great individual effort is required to become a successful dancer. Yet one sees that in ballet, too, success has its deep and personal satisfactions."
Includes an excellent piece on Rudolf Laban's much-overlooked universal form of graphically scoring ballet movements: Labanotation.

Superbly illustrated with a mix of b&w, full-colour, and two-tone monochrome drawings.
