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.
