Darcey Bussell: Evolved [9781784881795]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The first book from Darcey Bussell in over six years, retired darling of the British Ballet and beloved judge of Strictly Come Dancing, this publishing extravaganza coincides with the superstar ballerina's 50th birthday.

Exquisitely produced, the book is filled with remarkable images of Dame Darcey in various notable locations, such as a pod of the London Eye, on top of the Victoria and Albert memorial, and performing at worldwide events, like the Olympics opening ceremony. The collection includes rare and unseen moments of Darcey shot by some of the most famous photographers, including Lord Snowdon, Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz, in locations beyond the stage - including rehearsals, fashion shoots and more - which are accompanied by behind-the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes.

A fitting testament to one of our true national treasures, this glorious and charming book is a wonder to enjoy for years to come.

AUTHOR: In a career spanning more than 20 years, Darcey Bussell achieved legendary status in the dance world. Having trained at the famed Royal Ballet School in London, Darcey became the youngest British principal dancer at The Royal Ballet in 1989, where she remained her whole career.

She was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2006, and danced her final ballet, MacMillan's Song of the Earth, in June of 2007. She holds many patronages including being President of The Royal Academy of Dance and International patron of the Sydney Dance Company.

She has honorary doctorates from Oxford University and the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, presents The Royal Ballet's live cinema broadcasts and she is currently a judge on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing amongst her many activities.
