Put Your Best Foot Forward: A Young Dancer's Guide to Life

Grade 4-8–Those who are passionate about this art form and dream of becoming a professional dancer will find inspiration and sagacity on each page of this unique guide. The words of counsel proffered by the author, who was a principal dancer for the New York City Ballet and is a teacher at the School of American Ballet, are engaging, imaginative, and right on target. Whether advising a dancer to strike like a cobra in order to move with speed, aim, and purpose or to step lightly like a mother bird landing on her eggs, the imagery captures the point being made. Practical tips such as essentials that need to be in your bag and behavioral advice such as being grateful for criticism are nicely woven into the book. The photographs, mainly of female dancers, are clear and colorful. These words of wisdom will keep dancers on their toes and stretching their minds and hearts.–Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
