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.
Purchased for a class I dropped. I’m keeping it as it is full of great info. and some pictures as well. The book reads fairly sterile and is black/wht.

This book is great. It is really interesting and truly tells a concise history of ballet and modern dance. At the end of each chapter, there are other readings from history and other documents that relate to the facts in the chapters. A must have for any dance enthusiast.

This book gives such an insight into the world of Ballet and Modern dance. I am a dancer as well, and I highly recommend this to non-dancers as well.
