Publisher Comments:

Watching a flashy music video or an episode of So You Think You Can Dance probably makes most people a little shy about their dancing skills, but we all know how to dance. After all, dance is just a mash up of everyday movement and imagination. And while a musician might learn how to play piano or guitar, a dancerand#8217;s instrument is her own body. We just need to explore the unique, artistic voice inside that instrument and#151; and Learn to Speak Dance is all about helping kids do just that!

Drawing upon years of experience as a dancer, and dance teacher, Ann-Marie Williams exposes every aspect of the world of dance and#151; from different dance styles from around the world to tips on choreography, costume design, performance, staging, and even managing a potential career. Sheand#8217;s also brought along the expert opinions of a number of other dancers, set designers, choreographers, and reality TV judges, who share great tips and anecdotes throughout. But thereand#8217;s no need to get stage fright and#151; Learn to Speak Dance isnand#8217;t an audition, a lecture, or even a class. Itand#8217;s simply a revelation of just how far your own two feet can take you.
