From the beginning, American dance has been an exciting fusion of influences from around the world, with European traditions of ballet, Native American rituals, and African American improvisations coming together to create something new and extraordinary. In Dance in America: A Reader's Anthology, Mindy Aloff, dance critic and consultant to The George Balanchine Foundation, brings together writers, dancers, and creators to tell the remarkable story of this great American art form. With iconic photographs, personal stories from famed choreographers and performers, and brilliant profiles of key figures from Isadora Duncan to Michael Jackson, this book is a one-of-kind reading experience every dance lover will cherish.
