25 Years of American Dance
236 p. : ill. (b&w) ; 23 x 31 cm.
"25 Years of American Dance looks back upon a period of tremendous vitality -- one that has produced some of the greatest performing and choreographic giants of all time. We Americans have seen the rise of an indigenous ballet -- the birth and flowering of modern dance -- in short, the acceptance of dance as a true art form.
The thoughts that appear in the pages to follow are reproduced in excerpt from old issues of the magazines that make of DANCE Magazine's heritage. Many of the pictures also come from this rich source. All of the articles so derived have their date of publication listed in parentheses after their titles. The remainder of the text has been written especially for this book by outstanding guest writers or the editor." -- from the book's introduction.
