Book Description

Praise for the digital edition

 

 “A revealing book about the grueling—and glamorous—world of ballet.”—New York Daily News

 

“Chock-full of tips and advice for aspiring dancers and their parents, and includes a personal account of the ballerina’s rocky journey to fame.”—Brooklyn Downtown Star

 

“Entertaining, realistic, and practical—that big sister that you’d like to have beside you.”—Ballet News

 

“A must for the aspiring ballet dancer.”—Tammy Lechner, publisher, The Dance Series

 

Originally released in e-book format only, Jennifer Kronenberg’s inspiring how-to guide offers a wide range of pointers for success, starting with the basics: selecting a school, auditioning, sewing your pointe shoes' ribbons, and choosing what to wear. She also covers topics not usually taught in dance classes: backstage etiquette, emotional well-being, handling criticism, and eating for optimal energy.

            Best of all, this enhanced print edition features QR codes that can be scanned with a smartphone, taking you to a companion website full of bonus videos. Watch Kronenberg demonstrate how to arrange your hair for the stage, properly prepare pointe shoes, and apply stage makeup. You’ll get the head start you need to prepare for the highly competitive, often unforgiving, ultimately rewarding world of ballet.

 

Jennifer Carlynn Kronenberg, a native of Queens, New York, studied at the renowned School of American Ballet.
