About the Author:

Melinda Buckwalter is coeditor of Contact Quarterly, a dance and improvisation journal. She lives in Massachusetts.

Review:

Composing while Dancing is a treasure trove of dance improvisation information.”— Paul Langland, New York University



“A welcome addition to the sparse literature of movement improvisation. Through years of her own study, Buckwalter has gathered a cornucopia of improvisational practices from more than two dozen of the most intriguing (and underdocumented) movement artists working today. She then invites you, through the organization of the chapters and through her own energy and interest, to join the dance.”—Kent De Spain, author of Method to the Madness: Movement Improvisation in the Words of Its Practitioners



“An insightful, much-needed resource for those interested in dance improvisation. Budding young artists in particular will value the epilogue on developing their own practice.”—J. H. Roberts, CHOICE
