Title

Gail Grant's Technical Manual has long been one of the most popular and effective ballet reference guides. The book fully describes and defines over 1100 ballet steps, movements and poses and other expressions and concepts. For each, first a phonetic transcription is provided, then a literal translation and finally an explanation of how the step is performed, the pose-captured, or the movement executed, and how the concept fits in with actual ballet dancing, or of the purpose or function of the idea. A pronunciation guide, cross-references to alternate names for similar steps and positions that vary from the Russian to the French or Italian schools, and a bibliography are all invaluable aids. Every ballet teacher and student should own a copy of this amazing resource!
