KIRKUS REVIEW

A very specialized type of inspirational text book for the teacher of modern dance. The first part of the book discusses the function of the dance in relation to other arts and our modern culture, its place in education, and the analysis of the creative process. The most constructive section deals with dance techniques and variations, amplified by a bibliography of music (piano and record) -- and accompanied by instructions on organising dance clubs, putting on dance recitals, etc. The final chapters combine some historical and personality data, with her personal creed of the dance as a vital force in a changing world...For a limited and highly special market.
