Dedication - Opdracht

Nel Roos (1914-1970)

"Dutch artists have performed or taught at the Pillow [Jacob's Pillow] since the early 1940s,
including Lucas Hoving, Nel Roos, and Pauline de Groot."

Opgedragen aan Nel Roos, die een inspiratie en mentor voor mij was
op Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and University of Dance in 1963.

I recently read The Dance of Love by Margaret Craske (1893-1991).

The ballet technique, of which she spoke, lives on through these pages.

Her loving pupil, Susan Helene Kramer Ö September 15, 2012

1. Nederlands - Ballet introductie

Classical Ballet Beginning to Advanced in English with Chapter Introductions in English and
Dutch

The language of ballet is French. In this book for the Dutch reader, the chapter introductions are in Nederlands, and the technique is explained in French and English with a legend to translate English abbreviations to Nederlands.

Klassiek ballet voor beginners en gevorderden met hoofdstuk inleidingen in het Nederlands en de techniek in het Frans en Engels -

Music and ballet are intertwined - in the classroom and on stage. In the history of ballet it has worked both ways - musicians have composed with the idea for a ballet in mind, and ballets have been created from the inspiration of music.

Muziek en ballet zijn nauw verweven, zowel in het leslokaal als op het podium. In de geschiedenis van het ballet heeft het beide kanten op gewerkt: musici hebben composities gemaakt met het oog op ballet en balletten zijn gecreŽerd op inspiratie van muziek.

As students, we had piano accompaniment of the classics with each combination, and to this day I am uplifted hearing the music of Bach, Beethoven, Bizet, Chopin, Debussy, DvorŠk, Grieg, Hšndel, Lehar, Franz Liszt, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov, Saint-SaŽns, Smetana, Johann Strauss, Jr., Tchaikovsky, and Vivaldi, amongst others.

Als leerlingen werden we begeleid door klassiek piano spel bij elke combinatie en tot op de dag van vandaag raak ik in vervoering als ik muziek hoor van onder andere Bach, Beethoven, Bizet, Chopin, Debussy, DvorŠk, Grieg, Hšndel, Lehar, Franz Liszt, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov, Saint-SaŽns, Smetana, Johann Strauss jr., Tsjaikovski, en Vivaldi.
