The term Ballet Blancs, or white ballets refers to the identical white costumes worn by the dancers in the corps de ballet. There are several white ballets, but the most significant among them are Swan Lake, Giselle, and La bayadere. Lucky indeed, is the yong dancer who performs in some of them during her career.
Rajka Kupesic was one such ballerina. Now she is an author, artist, and dance school director who love to introduce young people to the magic of performance, staging, music, and artistry of this Romantic style. Here, she tells the stories behind the ballets, and as well, adds her own experiences and thoughts on her art, to bring readers onto the state and into the studio with her. Four years in the making, The White Ballets is a keepsake edition for anyone, especially aspiring dancers, first-time theatergoers, and recital debutants.
