Inside Ballet Technique Book By Valerie Grieg

Separating Anatomical Fact From Fiction In the Ballet Class

We highly recommend the Inside Ballet Technique book for every serious ballet student. In fact, it was compulsory reading for both Kimberley and Michael Berkin when they were training at the Royal Ballet School and they both still have a copy to this day!  

The book is packed full of essential anatomical knowledge that every ballet student and ballet teacher would benefit from. Featuring easy to follow pictures and diagrams, Inside Ballet Technique goes in depth into a number of different areas including the muscles, posture, turn out, the upper body & port de bras, the knee and the foot.

In the author's own words,

"The more knowledge the dancer - and the dancer's parents and teachers - has about the body as an instrument of artistic expression, the better the dancer.
Inside Ballet Technique introduces the reader to the natural anatomical laws governing human movement and body mechanics, and relates them directly to the dancer's acquisition of techniques in the daily ballet class.
Easy to read, simply and clearly illustrated, Inside Ballet technique provides a fresh perspective on the basic tenets of classical ballet, answering many questions that commonly persist in the minds of career-track students and dancers." 

 

Inside Ballet Technique by Valerie Grieg is an essential book for every serious ballet student and ballet teacher and highly recommended by the PDE team.
