This is a book for both ballet and Spanish dancers. It is a journey through the history of the fascinating country of Spain with its vibrant culture and people. It is the fusion of fifty years of ballet and Spanish dance experienced by the author as dancer, teacher and director of Spanish dance performances for her own company in the USA and others. The author endeavours to unlock and explain the many mysteries that surround this dance form for teachers, historians and lay readers. The connection to ballet is explored, especially to the style of the 19th century as found in the Cecchetti method and in the work of August Bournonville. Also explored is the bolero school's distinction from ballet, that makes it so unique. The historical progression and significance of the Escuela Bolera or the classical bolero school of Spanish dance and its regional roots are traced, as well as those of the Pericet family who today are its main preservers. The book also contains biographies of Spanish dancers and teachers who have been connected with the bolero school through the ages
