A Ballet Student's Companion is a book in the educational series by Fonteyn Academy Press. It goes with the Academy Method International Teacher Certificate program, but is quite helpful to all instructors and students of dance.
Academy Method,taught at The Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet, is based on the fundamental principles of movement as they apply to classical theatrical dancing. Carrying forward the teachings of Margaret Craske, and her students, this is what Dame Margot Fonteyn herself studied so long as she danced.
Dance students are often left in the dark as to precisely how, why, when, and for what purpose they are to do the many tasks assigned. They are not taught the mechanics of steps, the background of the traditions, the origins of movements, positions and gestures, nor how they are to apply what they know. Through this book, and in the Academy Method, students will find answers to these questions and be able to develop certainty in their dancing.
