Ballet The Definitive Illustrated Story

Call Number:  LL 792.8 DOU
Author: DK

DK presents the story of ballet from its beginnings in 1550 to today. The straightforward text is lengthy but never dense. Though the language is intended for older readers, a wide range of ballet enthusiasts will enjoy poring over full-page illustrations and photographs that are accompanied by concise, informative captions. The well-organized volume moves through ballet chronologically. Each time period is broken down into short segments focusing on famous dancers and choreographers, well-known ballets and choreography, theaters, and styles of dance. VERDICT A solid purchase for most reference collections.
