La Danse includes unpublished pictures of the great Rudolf Nureyev, the twentieth century's greatest male ballet dancer. Included are 4 CDs with the best of romantic ballet classics, including Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and more, performed under the direction of Gunther Herbig, Herbert Kegel, and Willi Boskovsky.

David Hamilton was born in London in 1933 and lives near St. Tropez, France. After his study of architecture and design he turned to typography and layout. While he was an art director of the English magazine Queen, he bought his first camera. Later settling in Paris as art director of Printemps he began devoting himself exclusively to photography. He has worked for the best international magazines, and his work has been shown all over the world including leading centers of art culture in New, Tokyo, London, Hamburg, Milan, and Paris.
