These and many more such questions asked by young or aspiring dancers are answered in this book the most revealing and instructive book yet on what it means to be a dancer

Here is advice from some of the best dancers and choreographers in the world

It crosses the fields of ballet, contemporary, South Asian dance, musical theatre and hip hop, covering subjects both motivational and mundane, from tapping into your own reserves of creativity and resilience, to the important matter of when to eat your pre-show banana

The twenty-five experts in these pages have performed with the likes of the Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Rambert, Matthew Bourne's New Adventures and BalletBoyz

They experts are Carlos Acosta, Matthew Bourne, Teneisha Bonner, Darcey Bussell, Lauren Cuthbertson, Maxine Doyle, Tommy Franzén, Adam Garcia, Jonathan Goddard, Matthew Golding, Melissa Hamilton, Wayne McGregor, Steven McRae, Stephen Mear, Cassa Pancho, Seeta Patel, Arlene Phillips, Arthur Pita, Kate Prince, Matthew Rees, Tamara Rojo, Kenrick 'H2O' Sandy, Hofesh Shechter, Aaron Sillis and Marlon 'Swoosh' Wallen

"'The main thing I learnt from compiling this book is that while some people might be born with talent, turning it into success is not so much about the gift, but the graft. Even if I'm too late for my own dancing career, that's actually quite an inspirational idea ...' ~ Lyndsey Winship on her own personal love affair with dance, and what working on Being a Dancer has taught her
