This vintage book is a fascinating treatise on ballet. It delves into the colourful history of ballet in ancient societies and explores its development throughout the ages from the dances of the Egyptians to modern opera. "The History Of Dance - Ballet" is highly recommended for those with an interest in the evolution of the dance and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on dance.
