A distinguished dance critic offers an enchanting introduction to the art of ballet As much as we may enjoy Swan Lake or The Nutcracker, for many of us ballet is a foreign language. It communicates through movement, not words, and its history lies almost entirely abroad -- in Russia, Italy, and France. In Celestial Bodies, dance critic Laura Jacobs makes the foreign familiar, providing a lively, poetic, and uniquely accessible introduction to the world of classical dance. Combining history, interviews with dancers, technical definitions, descriptions of performances, and personal stories, Jacobs offers an intimate and passionate guide to watching ballet and understanding the central elements of choreography. Beautifully written and elegantly illustrated with original drawings, Celestial Bodies is essential reading for all lovers of this magnificent art form.

The advice offered in this book draws on numerous theories and research findings in psychology and behavioural science. However it is essentially a personal approach based on experience of working with dancers, student dancers and dance teachers in various contexts and locations over a number of years. Its main purpose is to offer a broad perspective on the psychological pressures that dancers and student dancers commonly face and provide some practical suggestions on how these pressures may best be managed. Although the vast majority of my experience has been in the context of classical ballet I hope that the advice given here will be relevant to dancers, teachers and student dancers in all professional disciplines.

The word schadenfraude - originally a German word translated as 'pleasure taken in someone else's misfortune"- has become entrenched in popular culture. Filled with the missteps and downfalls of the famous and not so famous , this book taps into our universal longing to gawk and smirk at the people who stand-or fall-for all of us. This helps us feed the delusion that while the accidents and agonies of life are happening to someone else, we ourselves are spared... at least for the moment.
