Counter Ballet essentials for adults who want to revive a childhood passion-or get in shape This unintimidating guide shows adults how to enter-or come back to-the world of ballet. Packed with step-by-step photos throughout, it demonstrates basic and intermediate ballet positions, barre exercises, steps, jumps, and turns. Complete with advice on ballet equipment, the lowdown on power foods for peak dance performance, and a guide to ballet terminology, it's just what people need to prepare for a star turn-or choreograph a ballet aerobics workout that improves poise, grace, and balance. Scott Speck (Mobile, AL) is a conductor and the author of Classical Music For Dummies and Opera For Dummies. Evelyn Cisneros (San Francisco, CA), a legendary prima ballerina, danced with the San Francisco Ballet for 23 years. She has been featured on PBS and writes for Dance magazine.
