"Providing a contemporary look at what parents must know about the ballet art form, this practical guide includes information on performing, competing, and combining dance, higher education, and work. With photographs of young dancers in traditional positions and a description of the difference between syllabuses, it gives parents the knowledge to ask the right questions when looking for a teacher, a school, or a system of ballet for their child, such as Why are recitals important? What is the difference between a school that specializes and one that teaches all forms of dance? How do you know if a school is good or not? "

Review:

Though designed as a guidebook for parents, this book about ballet for young dancers is of great interest to the dancers themselves. It provides a glimpse into the entire ballet training process from the beginning years to professional ballet school as a young adult. It tells where to study, whether or when to attend a boarding school, how to find the right teacher and much more.
