"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
As founder of the UCLA Department of Dance and author of Creating Through Dance (Princeton Bk. Co., 1988. rev. ed.), Hawkins continues to explore the creative art of making dances. This volume draws equally from her experiences using movement as therapeutic intervention with emotionally disturbed adults and children in a psychiatric institution, and her experience teaching advanced dance students in an experimental program of her design at Santa Monica College. Process as opposed to product is her focus as she searches for ways to facilitate creative growth. Her theoretical analysis of the creative act, loosely organized and more personal than scholarly, will be of less interest to the reader than specific suggestions for movement exercises. Not the groundbreaking book the title suggests, but a useful idea book for teachers. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.
