Beautifully written and researched book! Lovely photographs!

Whether you are a balletomane interested in supporting a child's training, or curious about learning what it is like for a child to train at the vocational level as a student at the Royal Ballet School, you will enjoy this book. Well-researched and written by the mother of Principal Ballerina Yasmine Naghdi of the Royal Ballet, there is so much wisdom and insight incorporated into its pages as well as history and real experience. The author is intelligent, and definitely not your stereotypical stage mom! I loved the book, and I believe you will too.
