About this title

Synopsis:

Let yourself be drawn into the magical world of the dance with this sumptuous anthology. Love, laughter, betrayal, adventure and tragedy intertwine to create stories that will reach deep into the heart and dreams of the reader. The story of "The Sleeping Beauty" will whisk you away to the thorny castle where Princess Aurora awaits her prince; the comedy and confusion of "Coppélia" will delight you, and the magical adventures of Clara in "The Nutcracker" will entrance you.

Featuring a brief history of classical ballet, as well as historical details of each dance, composition, choreography and early performances, this book will captivate anyone with a love of this awe-inspiring art.

Heidi lives in Massachusetts with her two daughters. Rebecca Guay graduated from the prestigious Pratt Institute in New York City with a degree in illustration.
