The more knowledge the dancer - and the dancer's parents and teachers - has about the body as an instrument of artistic expression, the better the dancer. Inside Ballet Technique introduces the reader to the natural anatomical laws governing human movement and body mechanics, and relates them directly to the dancer's acquisition of technique in the daily ballet class. Easy to read, simply and clearly illustrated, Inside Ballet Technique provides a fresh perspective on the basic tenets of classical ballet, answering many questions that commonly persist in the minds of career-track students and dancers.
