I have the original version of this book and it was my bible when creating theory sheets for pupils.
(Great for pupils too so they understand the why and how movements are created)
No matter what syllabus you teach this book covers the correct terminology.
Darcey Bussell an acclaimed ballerina and this book for intermediate standard dancers is a beautiful read and inspiration. From port de bras to point work and everything in-between. A definite teenager book.
If you want the history and development this is great.
From my guest Sarah Gittins from Episode 6 of the Dance Inspire Podcast. A fabulous and inspiring woman.
