"Bournonville Ballet Technique offers a new approach to the study of the school and training system of the great nineteenth-century Danish choreographer August Bournonville. It presents fifty school exercises, selected and reconstructed from the notations of Hans Beck (Bournonville's successor), which he made in 1893, and are preserved in the Copenhagen Theatre Museum."--BOOK JACKET. "These exercises not only reveal how Bournonville's dance style and technique was directly inherited from the great French dancer and teacher, Auguste Vestris, but also offer a remarkably authentic reconstruction of the original form and content of the Bournonville classes as they were practised a century ago."--BOOK JACKET. "The exercises use the original musical accompaniment of the Bournonville School. The piano scores are available in a separate volume (also published by Dance Books), and have been selected and arranged from a catalogue of school exercises written in the early 1960s by Bournonville's foremost pupil, the Danish dancer and teacher Ferdinand Hoppe."--BOOK JACKET. "A companion video to Bournonville Ballet Technique is also available from Dance Books, featuring Rose Gad and Johan Kobborg of the Royal Danish Ballet, with music played by the pianist Julian Thurber."--BOOK JACKET. "This collection of fifty Bournonville exercises reveals a legacy of extraordinary value: the most accurate possible representation of a Bournonville ballet class as it was performed in his day."--BOOK JACKET
