Publisher Comments:

Where does the impulse to create originate? How does one cope with the highs and lows of the artist's life? What is the choreographer's responsibility to the dancers, the audience, the self? These are just a few of the probing questions that Rose Eichenbaum, a dancer turned photographer, asks 59 of America's most celebrated choreographers in her five-year quest to understand the secrets of creativity.

A collection of photographic portraits and vignettes based on intimate conversations, Masters of Movement takes us on a rare journey into the world of dance, from the concert stage and Broadway to feature films and music videos. Whether through her lens or through the revelations emanating from her masterful interviews, Eichenbaum has succeeded in capturing the essential character of her subjects, who confide experiences and emotions that have driven their creativity and defined their styles.

Masters of Movement will inform, empower, and inspire anyone on the creative path—and delight lovers of dance everywhere.
