The Classic Ballet: Basic Technique and Terminology

Muriel Stuart

Publisher: Alfred A. KnopfFormat: Paperback

“For soundness, for clarity, for succinctness, this manual of basic ballet is the best there is anywhere.” -Edwin Denby, “The Nation” With a precision unparalleled in any other book of its kind, “The Classic Ballet” presents a lucid text, and nearly six hundred drawings describe and illustrate in minute detail the proper body position, balance point, movement, and attitude of each position and step in the basic classical repertory.As George Balanchine wrote in his preface: “There are no shortcuts to great dancing, but what is necessary to remember and unalterable in its instruction may be found in this book . . . An admirable source of reference for the highest standard of practice.” It is an invaluable tool for the student or teacher of ballet-as well as a must-have treasure for the balletomane.
