    If you've ever dreamed of being a prima ballerina, take a step in the right direction with this inspiring reference title for children. The beautifully presented book contains everything you need to know about the world of ballet from one of the greats, Dame Darcey Bussell. The Ballet Book covers the history of this stunning dance, introduces the world's greatest dancers, and details the classical techniques of ballet for beginners. Younger readers will be captivated by the stunning photography and accessible text from start to finish. Basic positions and exercises lead on to more advanced jumps and pirouettes as boys and girls become more accomplished on their feet. This complete guide to ballet choreography explains the port de bras from the pas de deux, and the adagio from the allegro. Then, it's show time! You'll find out what goes on behind the scenes before taking centre stage in the spotlight. Budding ballerinas, this one's for you...
