Review:

"Invaluable. . . . A rich resource for personal investigation that not only encourages but also offers a generative framework for developing ones personal agency and artistry during challenging times."--Dance Research Journal

"Rich with anecdotes and a treasure trove of citations and references, this book will give dance teachers, scholars, graduate students, and dancers a fascinating read."--Dance Magazine



"Recommended."--Choice

“A fascinating, timely portrait of a dance landscape that looks dramatically different from the one that existed when modern dance was in the earliest stages of professionalization.”--Dance Chronicle



"The book makes a welcome contribution to the field of dance studies and dance education, and it will be a valuable resource for Technique teachers in general, especially those working with dancers."--AMSAT News
