Ballet Bunnies (Hardcover)
by Lucy Freegard

A beautifully illustrated picture book about mastering something new and enjoying it too!
 
Betty dreams of becoming a great dancer and performing onstage. At home, she’s unstoppable, happily twirling, darting, and pirouetting through every room. But in ballet class, everything changes: Betty suddenly feels clumsy, self-conscious, and frightened of forgetting the steps. Can she find her poise and balance in time for the big end-of-year recital? And more importantly, can she learn to have fun, believe in herself, and not worry about making mistakes?

Every kid will shout BRAVO for this adorable little ballerina bunny!

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.
