From Library Journal
An important addition to the reference libraries of teachers and students of ballet. Warren, soloist with the Pennsylvania Ballet for 11 years and now associate professor of dance at the University of South Florida, explains the correct execution of every step in the ballet vocabulary. Dancers from the American Ballet Theatre and the Joffrey Ballet appear in over 2600 photographs and illustrate the movement. Part 1 of the book covers basic concepts of training, physical characteristics of the ideal dancer, and suggestions for conducting a successful class. Part 2 is devoted to sequential photographs of more involved steps and definitions of terminology. Warren includes stylistic variations--Soviet, Italian, French, etc. This book is unprecedented in its detail and clarity. For anyone with a serious interest in ballet. Highly recommended.

There are not many options out there like this one, which is also surprising, so this one gets even more of a thumbs up as it must be regarded such a great book for those new to ballet.
I know next to nothing about any kind of dance, but my crowd includes former and current professional dancers, choreographers, artistic directors, and costumers, and they all think this is a terrific book.
Its reaaaally extensive this book, a lot of pages where they teach you step by step every single ballet movement.
Honestly its more that I was expected.
I really recommend this book.
