Basic Principles of Classical Ballet
Although the stars of Russian ballet Anna Pavlova and Tamara Karsavina possessed a national manner of dancing, there was no truly Russian school of dancing until the 1930s. The development of this school was largely due to Mme. Vaganova (1879–1951), not only a great dancer but also the teacher of Galina Ulanova and many others and an unsurpassed theoretician.

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
