Originally published in 1983 the first edition rapidly established itself as a core student text. Now fully revised and up-dated it remains the only book to address the rationale, process, techniques and methodologies specific to the study of dance history. For the main body of the text which covers historical studies of dance in its traditional and performance contexts, the editors have brought together a team of internationally known dance historians. Roger Copeland and Deborah Jowitt each take a controversial look at the modern American dance. Kenneth Archer and Millicent Hodson explain the processes they use when reconstructing 'lost' ballets, and Theresa Buckland and Georgina Gore write on traditional dance in England and West Africa respectively. With other contributions on social dance, ballet, early European modern dance and feminist perspectives on dance history this book offers a multitude of starting points for studying dance history as well as presenting examples of dance writing at its very best. Dance History will be an essential purchase for all students of dance.

The Ballet Book is produced in conjunction with Toronto's National Ballet School and is a definitive instructional resource for children who are beginning to explore the possibilities and delights of ballet. The introduction was written by Karen Kain. Lavishly illustrated with charming black and white photographs of students in action, supplemented by explanatory text, The Ballet Book illustrates in detail the positioning of the arms and the feet, barre work, pointe work, alignment, classical ballet poses, attitudes, allegros, batteries and arabesques. Deborah Bowes also discusses other aspects of ballet with chapters on preparing for class (grooming, dress, choosing a teacher and studio), being a healthy dancer (avoiding injury, realizing the health benefits of ballet), and gives an overview of ballet's historical highlights and modern opportunities. The comprehensive glossary will initiate students into the terms used in the study of ballet and will serve as an inspirational motivator, an exceptional teaching aid and an ideal companion for students.
