The launch will include a talk by the author Zoë Anderson, who is a dance writer and critic for The Independent. Zoë will give an insight into the book, which focuses on 140 ballets from the ethereal world of romantic ballet to the edgy, muscular works of modern choreographers. The book will delight anyone who attends the ballet, participates in ballet, or simply loves ballet and wants to know much more about it.
The talk will be followed by a short Q&A and book signing at the end of the evening. The entry fee includes a glass of wine and the chance to buy a signed copy of the book at a discounted rate of £20 (RRP £25).
