Summary:
"in this novel collaboration, one of our leading modern dancers gets the chance to talk with one of our leading dance writers about dance as a lived experience and a way of life.  Michael Ballard, a professional dancer for ten years, first with Alwin Nikolais and then with Murray Louis, tells us what it is like being a male dancer today, about the training, discipline, and compulsion which bring someone to the stage, about the dancer's daily life and the business of performing in a major dance company, about rehearsals and touring, music and choreography, about the nature of dance and the heightened intensity of existence which is performing." -- from the book jacket
