Editorial Reviews

"...this book is more than a catalogue of examples. It is a book of analysis and reflection. Its intention is not simply to declare the power of dance but to fathom it. It is designed to deepen understanding of the many roles of dance in human life: in shaping cultural identity, in expressing our deepest feelings, in embodying relationships and in giving form to ideas than cannot be rendered so aptly in any other way. More than this, it interrogates the conditions that are needed, in education especially, for dance to fulfill these roles." - Sir Ken Robinson, Foreword
