The Ballet Companion by Eliza Gaynor Minden

Simon & Schuster, 2005

"A superb reference book–all the information today's students need but can't get just by taking class–every dancer's library should have it." (Angel Corella, Principal Dancer, American Ballet Theatre).

We do agree: the book is a complete guide to the technique, training, artistry, and enjoyment of ballet and also a precious livre de chevet for dance lovers.

The beautiful 150 photos are by Maria Riccetto and Benjamin Millepied.

Eliza Gaynor Minden invented an innovative pointe shoe, built with modern materials, widely-used amongst in the USA and in England.

You cannot miss Ms. Gaynor Minden's book!
