Publisher Comments:

Choreography: A Basic Approach Using Improvisation is the complete guide to understanding the entire process of choreography, from concept to stage production. Thousands of dancers and dance instructors have used the first two editions of this book to solve common challenges in choreography, improvise movement phrases, expand movements into dances, and organize dances into complete productions and concerts.

This updated edition includes examples of how today's multimedia technology can be used to enhance choreography with special lighting effects, slide and PowerPoint projections, virtual dance performances, video conferencing, and motion capture. Each chapter contains movement exploration exercises, review and reflection questions, and application challenges that will help readers develop a better understanding of the choreographic concepts provided. And more than 70 high-quality photos provide a visual frame of reference and clarify key concepts.

Choreography: A Basic Approach Using Improvisation bridges the theoretical and practical aspects of the choreographic process. It is an excellent reference for serious dancers, choreographers, dance instructors, and teachers who want to understand the creative process of transforming movement into dance.

Book News Annotation:

Minton, a dance specialist in the public school system and former professor at the U. of Northern Colorado, describes creating choreography using improvisation. The concepts she explains can be used in many dance forms. She discusses finding inspiration, use of stage space, nontraditional methods, commonly used forms, and the process of putting the dance onstage, from auditions to costume design. This edition includes examples of how multimedia technology can be used to enhance choreography using lighting effects, slide projections, and other technology. It also aims to increase the reader's understanding of the National Dance Content Standards for K- 12 dance teachers. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
