The Romance of Ballet

Mike Davis

Odhams, London (1967)

I bought this book in my 20s, when I was so ballet-mad that I had my
room plastered with posters of Nuryev. It was just one of my
small-but-growing library of dance books that I read and reread.
It's seen me through countless moves, and I still couldn't be happy
if it wasn't on my bookshelf. Open it and the photos will always amaze you.


(Don't forget that many of these older books can be bought online
for little more than the price of shipping.)
