by

Ballet and Modern Dance : a Concise History (2ND 92 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 the “American“ ballet and the explosion of modern dance. Short profiles, an extensive bibliography, a helpful index, and selections from primary sources are also included.

Book News Annotation:

Meets the needs of both students and inquisitive dancegoers through a narrative focused on the development of Western theatrical dance--specifically ballet and modern dance--since the Renaissance, incorporating the most recent scholarship. The text is illuminated by excerpts from primary sources and embellished by eight photo inserts (b&w).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-246) and index.
