I Found thios book at the Library, While searching for another book. It is basically for anybody. Its called, "Striking a Balance, Dancers talk about Dancing." By Barbera Newman. I Found it very interesting, Though it is a old book, It was written in th 70's. The Dancers she interview include:
Felia Doubrovska
Serge Lifar
Igor Youskevitch
Merrill Ashley
Christine Sarry
Desmond Kelly
And More! I Found it very interesting!!
That sounded alittle like an Advertisment!!!

"Striking a Balance" is a terrific book. There's a second edition, available in paperback, with more interviews and an update on the dancers interviewed.

I read the old book I think, and it was pretty interesting. I think the new one sounds better though, because I felt the old one was...well, old and outdated.
