Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • "Classical Ballet Technique is an invaluable guide for students, teachers, and ballet lovers. It not only covers the
    broad spectrum of ballet vocabulary but also gives sound, practical advice to aspiring dancers. The clarity of the
    writing, in a field notorious for its opaqueness, is in itself a major achievement."--Merrill Ashley, Principal Dancer,
    New York City Ballet

    "An excellent, comprehensive guide to ballet pedagogy valuable to teachers and students alike. For many years Gretchen's
    has been a major voice in the dance community, and this extensive work details the study of classical ballet from her
    unique and expert point of view. I applaud her, and I heartily recommend Classical Ballet Technique."--David Howard,
    International Ballet Master and Master Teacher

    "Gretchen Warren has undertaken a monumental task and has completed it with distinction. Obviously a labor of love, this
    book's attention to detail and the clarity of its text and photos make it a valuable contribution to the lexicon of
    ballet. I recommend it to every serious student and teacher."--Thalia Mara, Founding Director, Ballet Repertory Company
    and National Academy of Ballet; Artistic Director, U.S.A. International Ballet Competition

    "Congratulations to Ms. Warren for her authoritative book on classical ballet. Thanks are in order too from the many
    professional teachers, dancers, and students of the art form who will benefit from this book-an essential addition to
    any dance lover's library."--Lawrence Rhodes, Artistic Director, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens

    Gretchen Ward Warren studied at London's Royal Ballet and the National Ballet School of Washington, D.C. She was soloist

    is professor of dance at the University of South Florida and frequently appears as a master teacher on the national and
    international circuits.

    American Dance Theater.
