"This book provides a unique commentary and guide to the world of dance as it is today.  Here the distinguished choreographers Rudi van Dantzig and Maurice Bejart describe why and how they create their ballets.  Lincoln Kirstein, Director of the New York City Ballet, has written about the achievements and the aims of this company, while Nadia Nerina tells of her exciting visit to Russia to dance with the Bolshoi Ballet.  There are professional assessments of modern dance in New York, London and Europe, and John Lanchbery of Covent Garden and Australia writes about the work of the conductor.
250 colour and black-and-white photographs illustrated over 25 different companies and many individual stars and artists from the most celebrated to the new young dancers, and create a comprehensive, serious and explanatory record of the important productions of recent years."
