Summary:
"Dancers explore angular and curved shapes, negative and positive space, textures, rhythmic patterns, and shifting qualities and quantities of dramatic energy and emotion.  These elements are first introduced in children's creative movement classes and continue to be developed in technique and composition classes.  But these elements are important not just to dance; they are the building blocks for all of the arts and are part of the bond that dance shares with visual, musical, and dramatic and literary arts.  By studying how artists working in other disciplines use these elements, dancers develop a more profound understanding of how to manipulate them in movement composition." -- from the book's preface
