About the Author
Born in London, Darcey Bussell was a late starter to ballet at the age of thirteen and studied at the Royal Ballet School. In 1986 she won the Prix de Lausanne. Then in 1987 she joined Salders Wells Royal Ballet, where in 1988, at the age of nineteen, she was recognized by MacMillan and then joined the Royal Ballet as a soloist. On her opening night in The Prince of the Pagodas playing the part of Rose, she made history as the Royal Ballet's youngest ever principal. In 1990 she received the Evening Standard Ballet Award and the Variety Club Award for Most Promising Newcomer. In 1995 she was awarded an OBE. She is now a favourite judge on Strictly Come Dancing.

Written with the complete beginner or intermediary in mind, it provides very clear, concise and safe instructions (corroborated by absolutely beautiful photography), of exercises favoured by the author, now a veteran of Pilates with 19 years experience of the technique. It is a complete and easy to follow introductory programme to the technique which thankfully, for me anyway, does not require any previous experience or involve in-depth reading!
The exercises are incredibly simple to learn, but physically very rewarding - they really do require quite considerable effort when carried out properly, but they remain incredibly addictive - five of us had a physically and spiritually uplifting time during our lunch hour at work today! (and have vowed to continue to do so- great fun!) If your interest has led you this far, you must buy this book!!
All sections having good clear instructions. I liked the book so much I also bought the DVD!
