by Giuseppe Ravera; illustrated by Roberta Pagnoni and Marina Romagnoli

Little ballerinas will do the dance of joy when they open this board book “bag” that fits perfectly into their hands. In this enchanting story, a little girl can’t wait to show her Teddy bear/best friend all of the things she loves about being a ballerina: magical pink ballet shoes, lacy pink ribbons, pretty tutus and more. It’s all so much fun that she can’t wait to teach Teddy how to dance too!

This beautifully illustrated book captures all the excitement and enthusiasm that little girls experience as they dream of becoming ballerinas themselves, and is sure to be taken everywhere they go. Perfect for bedtime, nap time, play time, or “any time” reading.

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.
