Round About the Ballet

by William Cubberley and Joseph Carman

Anyone who has ever seen a live performance of ballet knows the thrill of seeing larger-than-life figures on stage dancing in ways that seem superhuman. What are these dancers like beyond the footlights? How have they acquired such artistry and technique? What are the joys and difficulties in sustaining their careers? What dreams would they like to fulfill as performers? Round About the Ballet profiles the stars of the top New York City ballet companies: American Ballet Theatre and the New York City Ballet. Selected by Roy Round, one of the world's leading dance photographers, the dancers profiled represent the very best in ballet today. The dancers are brought to life through stories of their lives, real-life interviews, and the stunning photgraphs of Roy Round. This book is for ballet fans, dance students, and people who are curious about the performing arts.
