By Katharine Holabird; illustrated by Helen Craig

Feel what it’s like to be a ballerina in this Angelina Ballerina touch-and-feel book with a shiny die-cut cover and five touchable ballet textures inside!

Angelina Ballerina doesn’t just love ballet, she loves the satiny feel of the ribbons on her ballet slippers and the netting of her tutu. She loves working on her form at the ballet barre in front of the shiny mirror and the velvety seats when she sees a ballet performance. And at the end of the day, she always loves the feeling of her cozy bed…where she dreams of dancing again tomorrow!

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
