Ballet for Beginners - Mary Kate Mellow & Stephanie Troeller

Released February 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

If your daughter has been asking you about ballet lessons, here’s an inexpensive book you’ll want to purchase for her before you invest in expensive lessons.

Featuring the School of American Ballet, this nicely designed volume walks the youngster through the process of learning ballet. Illustrated with lots of color photos, you’ll begin with a chapter on “Creative Movement” for very young children, and then move on to “Children’s Ballet Class”, “Advanced Ballet Class” and “Putting It All Together”.

Basic steps are demonstrated with simple instructions on how to get one’s feet, arms and body into the correct position. There’s also an excellent glossary that can be used to familiarize the child with the terminology of the art of  ballet.

The beauty of this book is that it presents ballet in a manner a younger girl can understand. After reading this book a few times if she is still interested in lessons, sign her up. You may have a prima ballerina on your hands!
