Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • With a focus on dance innovation from the late 19th century to the present, this history provides dance students with
    accessible information on the major contributors to the art. Organized chronologically by the decades in which
    innovators were born or dance organizations were founded, the study shows the similarities and generational character
    that arise from shared influence. Rather than illustrations or photographs, this modern guide offers links to YouTube
    videos and other internet references to view examples of the work discussed. The scope is international, with coverage
    of German, Swedish, Belgian, Dutch, Taiwanese, Russian, Finnish, and Spanish pioneers of the avant-garde to illustrate
    that dance is a global language that continues to break boundaries and explore new ideas. Just a few of the 120 artists
    and performers featured include Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, George Balanchine, Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp, Merce
    Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Jose Limon, Katherine Dunham, Chunky Move, and Trey McIntyre.
