Part of the legacy left by the great Danish dancer, choreographer, and teacher August Bournonville ( 1805 - 1879) was a series of six complete classes, one for every day of the dancer's working week. These classes, which form the basis of the Bournonville style, and which are still part of the training programme of the Royal Danish Ballet, are here published for the first time, edited and with a detailed commentary by the Bournonville expert Kirsten Ralov. The Bournonville School was the first work to compile and preserve Bournonville's complete classroom teachings. As such, it is of great value not only to teachers and students wishing to make use of this valuable heritage, but to all those with an interest in the history and development of classical ballet technique.
