Ballet Book Reviews
What people are saying ~ Amazon reviews
“As a former soloist and now an adult recreational ballerina, I wish this had been around when I was first learning pointe. And as a medical professional, the way Sarah is able to explain complex anatomical and physiological issues to the lay person is impressive. Even reviewing the book, I learned a few more ideas to add to my routine— which I never expected after all this time.”
I highly recommend this book to my dancers and you!
Jam packed with exercises to Strengthen and Stretch your feet and arches for Dance, Gymnastics and Swimming. Explanations are detailed and very clear and concise with links to videos for you to learn more. I highly recommend this book to my dancers and you!
“As a former dancer and now dance teacher I think this books is a very valuable resource as it’s an informed, no nonsense approach to strong and beautiful feet. This is so needed to counter all the YouTube clips of hypermobile dancers performing unnecessary and dangerous tricks and stunts and encouraging others to follow suit. Instead Sarah provides safe, sensible and well thought out advice and exercises. This is a must have for dancers and teachers alike!”
“I’m a ballet instructor at Auburn Childrens Dance Theater in Washington. I have been thoroughly impressed with this ebook and would thoroughly recommend it to all my pointe students, not just beginners. It is packed full of safe exercises and video links for home practice that leave nothing to guesswork. This book is going to get a lot of use and I’ll be looking out for more publications from this author.”
“Sarah Arnold’s book is an excellent collection of simple yet effective exercises for strengthening and improving dancers’ feet. Her focus on understanding the body and encouraging dancers to take time to develop their proprioceptive awareness is excellent. The videos are clear and easy to follow. They make this a valuable resource for teachers and an easy to use guide for students. Ms. Arnold stresses careful practice, not a quick fix, to develop strong muscles in the feet.”
