Publisher Comments:

The last hundred years have seen dance become an increasingly integral element of popular culture. From ballroom dancing to breakdancing, A Century of Dance offers an intimate, engaging exploration of the choreographers, dancers, and impressarios, as well as the dance steps and crazes, that have transfixed the public and transformed both art and leisure. Here are the sultry gyrations of Josephine Baker; the phenomenal tap work of the Nicholas Brothers; the innovative Hollywood grace of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly; the Broadway hi-jinx of Bob Fosse; and much more. With 360 stunning color and black-and-white photographs and entries on every significant personality and trend in dance since 1900, A Century of Dance is an unparalleled guide to the transcendent world of twentieth century popular dance.
