Monthly Must Reads
ABT's Ballet Dictionary
Here is a link to American Ballet Theatre's Ballet Dictionary. Though this dictionary is not complete; it is a comprehensive resource for all dancers to review to gain knowledge and expertise in your ballet vocabulary.
Cool feature! One terrific feature about this online dictionary is that it has audio for how to pronounce the terms properly with a lovely French accent
Eat Right, Dance Right
From Pointe Magazine:

Her new book, Eat Right Dance Right, is a practical, easy-to-use guide on how to fuel your body for the rigors of a dance career. Scioscia explains how metabolism and calories work, breaks down the building blocks of a nutritious diet, dispels diet myths, and offers grocery shopping tips and sample menus. A great educational tool, Eat Right Dance Right will help you create healthy eating habits for stronger performance. Available in paperback.
