• Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet (Dover Books on Dance)

    "Miss Grant has made more information available in one book than we have ever had before. Teacher's organizations would do well to consider the use of Miss Grant's Technical Manual as an official textbook." — Dance MagazineTeacher recommended, Gail Grant's Technical Manual has long been one of the most popular and effective ballet reference guides. Completely revised and updated, this third edition is virtually a new work and should be owned by every student, dance teacher, choreographer, and ballet enthusiast — even those who purchased the second edition. Extensive revision, expansion, and the inclusion of more than 300 new terms have added immeasurably to the value of this concise, definitive manual.Moving from "abstract ballet" and "adage, adagio" to "working leg" and "wrapped position," the book fully describes and defines over 1,100 ballet steps (saul de chat, jeté enveloppé, failli, entrechat six, etc.), movements and poses (arabesque, épaulement, attitude, en arrière, retiré, à terre, dégagé, etc.), and other expressions and concepts. For each, first a phonetic transcription is provided, then a literal translation, and finally an explanation of how the step is performed, the pose captured, or the movement executed, of how the concept fits in with actual ballet ...

    Excerpt from Advanced Metal-Work, Vol. 1 of 3: Lessons on the Speed-Lathe, Engine-Lathe, and Planing-Machine; For the Use of Technical Schools, Manual-Training Schools, and Amateurs; The Speed-Lathe While these lessons are not intended to dis pense with the watchful eye and the helpful hand of an instructor, they are designed to fuinish to the student such explicit directions that he shall be able, in most cases, to do the work well if he will follow the directlons exactly. The authors believe that the mechanical skill alone which a course of manual training imparts is only a part, and not even the most valuable part, of the train= ing which the workshop and laboratory can give the power of intelligent reading and of accurate and orderly description is equally important, and so is the power of foreseeing the difficulties that will arise in the course of a given operation and of devising means to evade or overcome them. These powers it is hoped that these lessons may help to impart. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
