Synopsis

Invitation to Ballet by Carolyn Vaughan

Balancing on tiptoe, leaping high in the air, stretching their arms and legs into beautiful arabesques, ballerinas seem to float effortlessly across the stage. But to create that illusion, ballet dancers take classes and practice for years. In this Invitation to Ballet, young readers will find out what happens in ballet class, learn about some of the steps and leaps and discover the magic of ballet. Works of art by French impressionist Edgar Degas bring the ballet vividly to life, while illustrations by Rachel Isadora picture modern-day children practicing ballet positions and steps. Complete with a brief story of ballet and biography of Edgar Degas, Invitation to Ballet is sure to delight every child who dreams of one day becoming a ballerina.
