What should I wear to ballet class? How do I make the correct shapes with my arms and feet? What should I remember when I dance on stage?

Perfectly pitched text by expert author Kate Castle, a former dancer with the Royal Ballet, provides a highly practical guide to every aspect of ballet, while beautiful photographs truly capture the magic of dance - from the excitement of a child's first class to the joy of dancing on stage and the wonder of watching ballet in performance.
