Ballet on HubPages

Updated on February 16, 2018

Kate Swanson is an Australian writer and dancer with nearly 40 years' experience in ballet, jazz, flamenco, ballroom, Latin and bellydance.

This Hub is the third in a series about dancing on HubPages - the first two covered flamenco and belly dancing. This time I'm going to focus on ballet, which was the dance genre I first fell in love with (at the age of 3 at a performance of La Fille Mal Gardee).

I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of ballet articles on HubPages, and have decided not to include some of them for that reason. I've also omitted some otherwise good articles promoting a book called The Ballet Bible - I haven't read it myself, but I do know a respected ballet teacher who reviewed it and gave it a big thumbs down.

If you feel you have a good quality, informative ballet article that I've missed, please let me know.

      Interesting collection of articles about ballet. You are right that not many people are writing on this topic here, but I'm glad that you are.
