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. Though dance kinesiologists and students of human motion have studied both techniques, their findings have rarely informed the teaching of either. 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. Paskevska persuasively argues that ballet technique has itself evolved over the last three centuries; and that the most vital dance movement is one that absorbs outside influences as well as preserving its traditions. All dance forms use the body as their instrument, and all require flexibility, strength, control, awareness of intent and meaning, kinetic energy, musicality and rhythm. Ballet Beyond Tradition offers new ways to understand the ballet vocabulary in terms of the most recent understan of the body and how it moves.

Product Description:

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.

Review:

"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
