I have researched and purchased various ballet books and videos for my daughter (7 yo beginner) and myself (a dance teacher). This one is the product inspiring and helpful for both of us. The selection of the material, quality/artistry of the photographs and accompanying DVD are all superb - by far the most beautiful product I have seen. It is simply delightful!

My daughter loved to read through each page along with studying the photos - she gets more knowledge out of the book than from her classroom.

It is worth mentioning .. my 7 year old even pointed out that the barre works on DVD were shoot by 2 models facing the opposite sides, so a complete view of the movement (front-back view or left-right view) can be seen clearly (whereas if this was seen on other videos, there are typically 2 or more groups of dancers scattered in a classroom - kind of distracting).

Congratulations to the producer and the production team!!

The book is very informative and the photos are lovely as DK photos usually are. You can learn alot of the positions and terms from this book with photos to guide you. However, I want to warn those like me who know virtually nothing about ballet that this book and dvd contain pointe excercises. After some research I found that people are generally not ready for pointe until about 2-3 (maybe even never)years after starting ballet and working very hard with a trained instructor very regularly. They do not allow children younger than 10-11 to begin it as it can be very damaging to the developing bones of a child this age range. I suggest you take the time to research pointe and pointe readiness before allowing your little girl to get her hopes up as I did.

My two daughters take ballet and enjoyed reading this book together. It has great photos and teaches the technical terms in an easy to comprehend manner. My younger daughter really took to this book and uses it as a fun reference. The included DVD is very helpful and it's a good deal to receive it included with the book. My daughters dance together with the DVD. Highly recommended. We also enjoy the Element DVD (we love Elise Gulan), the Illustrated Book of Ballet Stories (with CD), the Ballet Friends book series, and the Ballet for Beginners DVD.

This book is superb.. the pictures are clean and neat with lots of directions to teach the right way to do each pose !!!! this book features small girls under the age of 10 and one male but ..have no fear this book can be used for adults am a newbie at ballet and this is a great supplement with ballet classes !! the picture are glossy and Beautiful... there en pointe exercises but that is not the focus of this book. the book also breaks down two dances very clean and great directions. the DVD is great the DVD follows the book ...in the book on most of the pages there is a dvd symbol - so when you put the dvd on you" can go to that section and the dancer will show the steps .. the music is very mellow and goes with the ballet steps the dvd is about 25min ... i have seen many other books with ballet poses and directions but this book is so easy to follow the pictures and big and clean and there is no way to get lost or misunderstand ..and if "you do .. pop in the dvd ...

You" will not be sorry getting this book :)

This is a wonderful book. My daughter takes ballet and wanted a book that included technical terms for positions and steps. This book was perfect. Beautiful photos. Now she can even practice her ballet at home with the DVD.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this for my just 7 year old granddaughter. She practices at least twice a week in her room. She likes to show off to her parents what she has learned. I wouldn't mind getting another just for myself because I never had the opportunity when I was young and it would give me an up when I am spending time with her.

My daughter loves this book and uses the DVD to teach herself ballet. She dances almost everyday of the week with it. And has seen great improvement in her ballet.
