Vanganova is who we based our ballet on at MHC when I took ballet one. I think she's awesome, and this is a great book for anyone interested in ballet. It is perfect for beginners- it is explains everything clearly. I'm rather fond of the little skirted ballerina illustrations throughout. Read full review
