The Gail Grant is very inexpensive, the Warren book relatively expensive but well worth it! They are both available through Amazon, and if you click on the link to Amazon, above, and order by going there from this site, the site receives a little tidbit of help!

Gail Grant's Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet is so inexpensive and yet so important I have just decided to buy them in bulk and give them to my graduates of Ballet IIIC as a "job well done" when they enter Ballet IVA. Spend the $5.00 and you will never regret it. It's funny how students will spend that much on a cup of coffee, but not a book. :rolleyes:
Here are two additions to the list that I find commonly misspelled:
Fouetté [fweh-TAY] - Whipped
Pirouette [peer-WET] - Whirl or spin

That is such a wonderful thing to do! I'm sure your students love you.

2. jump off one leg and beat it against the leg in arabesque
3. land in starting position
4. repeat several times and hope that you don't look like a sack of potatoes!

Actually, it's a paradox. "A rose is a rose is a rose...." Now, THAT'S a tautology.
Actually, I think it's an oxymoron, not a paradox.
