sorry if I have missed a post on this but looking back I could only find older books. I have just bought a few new dance books for my daughters (age 8 and 9) and thought others might be interested in checking them out. They haven't read them yet so i can't comment on how good they are. The Tsar's Ballet Slippers by Angela A. Riley Born to Dance by Jean Ure which is apparently the first of three The Secret of the Ballet Book by Navita Dello Any other recommendations for this sort of age? We have Lorna Hill, Noel Streatfeild and Drina. Thanks
Hi, I'm hoping someone can help with some research (about a ballet school, but its history and architecture, so not really appropriate for 'Doing Dance'). I've been trying to find images of the Bolshoi ballet school in Moscow but can only find photos of a Soviet-era building in the Frunzenskaya district. I can't find any information about when that building was erected, or where the school was and what it looked like in pre-revolutionary times. I'd also be interested to know whether, in the past, the Bolshoi company rehearsed in the old school building (as the imperial ballet rehearsed on Theatre Street in Petersburg). Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
