Thank you! A history meant to be read with a highlighter in hand. The author, a dance critic for The New York Times, tosses a few tidbits to balletomanes, but gears his text to readers with little or no previous knowledge of dance. He avoids technical terms, carefully defining even ""arabesque"" and ""pointe work,"" and places each development in cultural context. At each chapter's end, he includes readings from contemporary articles, manuals and reviews. An excerpt from Carlo Blasis' Code of Terpischore admonishes dancers that ""Nothing is of greater importance than frequent practice,"" and continues in words that could be a quote from any modern ballet-master.
