The Feeling Balletbody
by Annemari Autere
I am fascinated by how much time six-year-old children can spend making the thumb touch the index finger, then the middle finger, and so on. So taken by this little exercise, they get cross-eyed when asked to do both hands at the same time.
While many parents and teachers believe that ballet lessons should start as early as five or six, Annemari Autere expounds on the contrary. In this book, she reveals how ballet students can effortlessly enhance posture, movements, and others in ballet. Erroneous myths are revealed and debunked as she explains, scientifically and through experience, the ins and outs of a ballet dancers instrument.
