    Ballet Lover's Companion - Zoe Anderson - Yale University Press - ,14TL - - Kitap.   In the spring of I interviewed Zoë Anderson, who writes on ballet for the Independent and Dancing Times, to talk about her Ballet Lover’s Companion, published by Yale University Press.. Zoë’s book traces the history and development of ballet as an art form by focusing on works in the repertoire: classics, revived rarities and modern masterpieces.

      The book is all text, and will take you through a glossary of ballet terms, on to the very beginning of ballet and all the way through history. One thing that has always hampered the continuation of ballet through the centuries is its oral tradition: that of passing on the steps and the choreographer’s intention from dancer to dancer.
