Here is a refreshing and informative look at the entire range of Western dance through the well-schooled eye of The New York Times dance critic Jack Anderson. Now expanded and updated, this second edition of the original bestseller is an engaging interpretation of dance history -from the Ancient Greeks and European royal courts to the rise of 'American' ballet and the explosion of modern dance. A valuable reference, this provides related readings -key primary sources- as well as a Short Profiles section, an excellent introduction to the profession's most enduring personalities.
