It’s Only Ink! Ballet Stories
It's Only Ink!
For centuries, ballet has been an elegant form of storytelling, combing music with dance. Dating as far back as 1581, ballet has grown to become a favorite around the world.
In “Ballet Stories”, readers will enjoy the stories of “Swan Lake”, “The Nutcracker”, “The Sleeping Beauty”, and much more.
Love, laughter, betrayal, adventure, dreams, drama, and tragedy are beautifully woven together in this book to treasure.
Artist Rebecca Guay vividly brings the drama of each story to life. Her Victorian-style illustrations enhance each and every page with beauty and awe.
This lovely volume features a brief history (timeline) of classical ballet, as well as historical details, dance composition, and choreography.
This reviewer highly recommends this mesmerizing and luxuriously informative look at classical ballet and the tales behind them.
