Book Review: Basic Principles of Classical Ballet

Hi fellow adult ballet learner,

I would like to share one useful book if you're just start picking up adult ballet, Basic Principles of Classical Ballet by Agrippina Vaganova. Maybe you heard of Vaganova ballet school in Russia. Yes, this book was written by Vaganova herself. Vaganova created a systematic ballet teaching system and is considered the best method so far.
