Any child who's been dazzled by dance will treasure The Best Book of Ballet. Lavishly illustrated in full color, this information-packed book offers a behind-the-scenes look at ballet, and shows aspiring dancers the fascinating, elegant world of dance.

Along the way, the detailed text and step-by-step illustrations give an overview of ballet history, display costumes and make-up, and reveal the busy lives of professional dancers. Young readers developing their reference skills will find an illustrated glossary and index at the back of the book.
