Substance: The text consists primarily of anecdotes from dancers on dieting and training which are only marginally interesting and not really useful, since they contradict each other and Kent does not resolve the contradictions. Most of the general advice is obtainable elsewhere in better format, and much is out of date.Style: An extended popular-magazine article, concerned mostly with name-dropping.

When I first checked out this book I wasn't sure what to expect. A lot of "dancer's body" books seem to be engrossed with false information, and not a lot of background on the true hardships of being a Ballerina. After getting through the first couple of chapters I seemed to be hooked on this read; the information was accurate and truly displayed how difficult a dancer's body must work in order to fit its daily needs. I enjoyed the way the author went over, in great detail, the strict diet of a dancer and how their company exercise is key. From reading this book I was able to grasp more of an outsider's outlook on the dancer's body and how it is maintained through vigorous work. I recommend this novel for anybody who has the desire to learn more about the dancer's body, how it is acquired, what foods to stay away from, and all other questions relating to a Ballerina's hard work.

This book had a lot of good information about dancer's dieting. If you dance serously and intensively it is important you eat correctly and very healthy. This book may emphasize losing weight but the core idea is to be healthy and feel full and fresh. There are things in this book that may annoy a dancer. There are all sorts of columns comparing weights of different dancers to people. I just want to note that healthy weights vary from person to person and this book may make someone feel bad. Buy this book only if you dance. If you are a serious dancer I reccomend it because it gove suseful advice.
