For nearly a century, the training of ballet and modern dancers has followed two divergent paths. Modern practitioners felt ballet was artificial and injurious to the body; ballet teachers felt that modern dancers lacked the rigorous discipline and control that comes only from years of progressive training.

Ballet Beyond Tradition seeks to reconcile these age-old conflicts and bring a new awareness to ballet teachers of the importance of a holistic training regimen that draws on the best that modern dance and movement-studies offers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are many ballet teachers who are revisiting the classical vocabulary in light of other movement techniques...yoga, martial arts, Pilates, Alexander Technique, Bartenieff Fundamentals....I applaud [this book's effort to enlighten ballet teachers into realizing that basic movement principles and attention to developmental aspects of teaching are important."
-Melanie Bales, Ohio State University
