This is a wonderful addition to the literature on ballet. The auther makes her apologies in the beginning for not being able to include some noteworthiy teachers, but the ones she was able to cover are great. The information provided gives us valuable insight into the aesthetic principles of these great dancers and teachers. This should be useful to all dancers, whether they teach or not. Some very esoteric facts can be found here as well, such as why Balanchine likes the fingers and hands held the way he does and why many don't like it that way. I had taken some classes with a Mr. Schabel and discovered his claim to fame in these pages. The Great Jean Babilee is even discused. You might also get some good ideas for further reading in this book as I did.

I love this book. Very detailed and readable accounts of great teachers of the 20th century. There are sample classes from the teachers in the back which are very interesting to study. A must have for all aspiring dancers and veteran teachers who need a little inspiration.

Good read for ballet teachers. I wish I had more time to dive into this book. But I read a chapter here and there. I feel like I am there with those master teachers. Great service. I received it on time.

There is not a more thorough, thoughtful book on teaching ballet anywhere. A must for teachers and students. Photos instead of line drawings. In depth explanations with many excellent dancers photographed.

excellent book. This is my second book and I'll give it to my ballet teacher.

Every ballet teacher must own this book. You will gain enormous insight into how 10 master teachers pass on the art of ballet to their students. You may not be drawn to the teaching styles of each teacher but you will learn something from everybody. Each chapter begins with a short essay in which Ms. Warren weaves what she learned from interviewing the master teachers about how they developed their method of teaching with specific accounts of what she observed in their classes. Each chapter concludes with "Classroom Quotes," the order of exercises in a technique class, and the pedagogical lineage of the master teacher. At the end of the book, Ms. Warren includes several exercises constructed by each of the master teachers. For non-teachers, this book will give you renewed appreciation for the work that goes into making a dancer.

This is the most comprehensive collection and explanation of ballet technique available today. Ms. Warren is a ballet scholar of the highest order. I recommend this book to all my serious, older students; it is an invaluable reference book for any serious ballet student or instructor. Every step is fully explained and clearly photographed, demonstrated by professional dancers. A great scholarly and practical book.
