And what better teacher could you possibly ask for?
Cyril W. (William) Beaumont, 1891-1976, was probably the world's greatest lover
of ballet. Since writing was his stock-in-trade he wrote about it... constantly.
The history of dance, reviews of the ballets he attended, news articles on events
in the dance world. As a friend of the great teacher Enrico Cecchetti, he helped
set the syllabus for ballet training that would guide training for dancers in the
Royal Academy of Ballet in Great Britain and in the Cecchetti method schools of the US.
This charming book is the collection of dance writings he enjoyed best by others.
