The story of ballet has been told many times. Its earliest years have been extensively researched in the archives of France and Italy and many of the people and events associated with its history are now so famous that they have become legendary. YetMoreThe story of ballet has been told many times. Its earliest years have been extensively researched in the archives of France and Italy and many of the people and events associated with its history are now so famous that they have become legendary.

Yet it is a story that continues to fascinate and delight, from its origins in the courts of Europe, its establishment as a popular art by the end of the eighteenth century, through the great romantic and classical periods, to the exciting developments of recent years. Using many of the beautiful photographs available of present-day productions as well as a wealth of historical material, this book traces the whole story of ballet and modern dance.

Historical fact is turned into a living story as the great dancers of today recreate the roles made famous by names sometimes forgotten or which have since become legendary. Biographies of key figures of the past and present and the stories of the creation of key ballets are woven into the text as part of the ever-developing history, the landmarks in what is now one of the most popular of all art forms. The gradual and exciting growth of modern dance from the first deliberate revolution against the classical ballet at its peak to todays close collaboration between the two schools is shown in its historical perspective.

The final message of the book is that ballet and modern dance are now so entwined that future generations will think only of dance.
