My First Ballet by Kate Castle


My First Ballet by Kate Castle

What should I wear to ballet class? How do I make the correct shapes with my arms and feet? What should I remember when I dance on stage? New in paperback, My First Ballet Book provides the answers to these and many more questions. It will inform and inspire all young dancers -- those just starting out and those who are already immersed in the world of ballet. Perfectly pitched text by an expert author provides a highly practical guide to every aspect of ballet, while beautiful photographs truly capture the magic of dance, from the excitement of a child's first class to the joy of dancing on stage and the wonder of watching ballet in performance. Hints and tips throughout will help every child make the most of his or her ballet classes
