EPUB In the Wings

Book description

This was such an enjoyable read for someone like me who enjoys ballet, but has no idea what goes into it.Froman, a ballet dancer himself, has his camera by his side in the studio and takes photos of all stages of the process; from warming up on the barre to using a laser in the physical therapy room, this is a side of ballet I had never seen.The photographs, featuring a wide variety of dancers and performances, are organized chronologically with where they would fall into a daily routine.Froman includes brief narration of each segment (did you know the dancers frequently speak to each other on stage during performances?), but mostly the pictures speak for themselves.

My only disappointment was Froman repeatedly references Square Dance, the ballet he was rehearsing/performing at the time of the writing but includes no photographs of it.(I realize he was a dancer in it, but I wish he would have handed the camera off to someone like his twin brother to take a few shots).He talks a lot about the complexity and speed of the dance, so it would have been interesting to see a bit of it.Also, after hearing his voice and seeing his perspective, I would have liked a little more behind the lens.

All in all a great read that gave me a better appreciation of the ballet.
