About the Author

Peter Martins was born in Denmark and began his association with the New York City Ballet thirty years ago. George Balanchine appointed him a ballet master in 1981 and since 1990 he has been ballet master in chief. Acclaimed as a dancer and choreographer, he lives in New York City with his wife, Darci Kistler, and their daughter, Talicia.


Want to add a little grace and dignity--not to mention strength and flexibility--to your workout? Pick up a copy of The New York City Ballet Workout (William Morrow,1997). With exquisite black and white photos by Richard Corman and Paul Kolnik, the book illustrates the stretches and workout routines used by dancers of theworld-renowned New York City Ballet (NYCB). "This is a full-body conditioning workout, " says Melinda Roy, a former principal dancers with the NYCB and co-creator of thebook. "It will help you strengthen and lengthen your muscles, and improve your posture."--Fitness, December 1996 "The body is our instrument. One thing to remember is that we all have the same instrument, whether some of us have shaped it into the body of dancer or not...When I began to develop a workout based on the principles of New York City Ballet, I kept thinking of Michelangelo's unfinished sculptures that are part stone, part dancer. You want to be a sculptor of your muscles in order to achieve maximum muscle tone."--Peter Martins, from the Foreword
