    This is probably one of my favorite ballet books, and I have MANY! The combinations are easy to understand, of course easy to blend with your own style or level changes, money very well spent! 🙂

    This book is a great resource for ballet teachers. As ballet teachers we all struggle periodically to keep our material fresh, but not too choreographic to make sure our students are getting good solid technique every single lesson. There are a lot of existing resources out there already, but most of them are extremely complicated, or not notated very well, or translated poorly from another language. I have many books with ballet combinations in them, but I hardly use them, because of the time it takes to even figure out what the combinations are. When I first got this book, I randomly selected combinations throughout the book and skimmed them for content. With every combination Tamara has written, I have been able to grasp the full concept of the enchainment with only a few seconds time invested. Each combination is written clearly with concise musicality and correlating port de bras.

    I also loved that the content of her combinations was great as well. Her combinations are methodical and mathematical which, in my opinion, is the best for students of all levels, beginning to advanced, so they can meet their technique “head on” and see what is really going on in their dancing. Most of these combinations would be just as well given to 13 year old students as to advanced professionals. I appreciate being able to have a resource that shares my own teaching philosophy in this aspect.

    I did find one echappe combination for pointe that wasn’t square, but that wasn’t enough for me to rate it any less than 5 stars.

    Trust me, ballet teachers, this is something you’re going to want for those days where you can’t find fresh inspiration within yourself, and you need an outside voice to nudge you in the right direction.
