This man was a dancer, a choreographer and for more than 40 years the artistic director of The Royal Danish Ballet. His style is unique and his ballets are still being danced all over the world. Bournonville (1805-1879) had a French father and Swedish mother, but he himself was Danish and a patriot. This book discusses his childhood days in ballet school, his fascination with Napoleon, his first ballets, his writings, his famous ballets, his family and travels around Europe. A fascinating biography of this great man with beautiful photographs throughout.
