History and Positioning is a book in the educational series by the Fonteyn Academy Press. It accompanies the Academy Method International Teacher Certificate training program, but is quite helpful to all instructors and students of dance.
The Academy Method is taught at The Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet. It 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 was dancing.
This book gives the dance student an overview of the entire history of ballet, from its somewhat scandalous start under King Louis XIV in France through to today. It is a must for all ballet students and ballet teachers.
