A Guide to Ballet Class by Charlie Plunkett
In between writing and publishing five chart topping titles, Charlie also enthusiastically teaches ballet in her home town, Brighton. Charlie's Facebook page is filled with images of her students, who are all ages and who are all obviously enjoying their ballet lessons. Like many young girls I too wanted to be a ballerina and took ballet classes, so I really envy Charlie's lucky students! However, Charlie's now published a guide to ballet, titled, A Guide to Ballet Class, so there's no excuse anymore not to get those ballet pumps on - even if you've never had a ballet lesson before, this easy to follow guide starts from the beginning, so if you didn't even know how to place your feet in first position, grab a copy of this book and be enlightened - ballet's an excellent form of exercise too, and excellent for improving and maintaining posture. And of course, A Guide to Ballet Class is written in Charlie's inimitable style, so her instructions are not only easy to follow, but will also bring a smile to your face, and will also provide a wonderful Christmas gift for any student or would be student of this lovely dance form.
To complement this excellent guide, Charlie also has her own Youtube channel, where she demonstrates just how to look graceful, exercise and have a ball(et) all at the same time.
A Guide to Ballet Class; a practical and light hearted look at the wonderful world of ballet, by Charlie Plunkett.
REVIEW by "Bookedin"
This is a beautifully presented book. A sweet little handbook for ballet enthusiasts, with the technical jargon kept to a minimum and a chatty, smooth narrative throughout. Professionally done and highly recommended. (five stars).
