4.0 out of 5 stars On the whole good, but sadly lacking, 19 April 2013
This review is from: Ballet For Dummies (Paperback)
I bought this book a couple of years ago as an intro to me learning as an adult. On the whole it is a really good book, very informative with plenty of steps to keep anyone playing. But I have to agree with previous comments. You have to wade through a lot of the written word with the pictures being quite small, and sometimes not near the text. My book is covered in little page markers so that I can turn straight to the exercises. It would have been nice to have included some other exercises for strengthening/stretching the feet. The other disappointing fact is that there is no accompanying DVD. This would have been a great addition, allowing people to see the steps and follow a class format. For anyone, wanting to take up Ballet as an adult though it is a good first book. Another good book is the DK 'Ballerina' book with DVD. Very basic and appears to be primarily for children but offers good visual aids for some of the steps in the Dummies book.
