Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Sir Jon Trimmer is a Kapiti, Wellington, and New Zealand dance legend. His timespan and durability is unique in world ballet. This is his story. The first part follows Jon's journey through: the fledgling years of New Zealand Ballet with Poul Gnatt and Russell Kerr; his training in London's Royal Ballet School; his international performing with Sadler's Wells, Australian Ballet and Royal Danish Ballet; performing alongside Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev; and his long faithful vigil alongside his dancing wife Lady Jacqui with Royal New Zealand Ballet. In the second part of this book Jon has a whole quota of tips for new (and older) players in his dancing world: How did he leap so high? How on earth did his body keep up with such constant physical demands? How did he reinvent himself as a character performer?"--Publisher description.
