From the American Indian sun dance to the Zulu marriage dance, from the
ballets of Ballanchine to the disco craze--dance is a part of almost every
culture of the world. As ritual, as celebration, and as art, dance is both
exotic and traditional, primitive and modern. This stunning exploration of this
most visual of art forms is brimming over with richly detailed sets and
costumes and photos of memorable performers and their techniques. A
75th Eyewitness volume with truly universal appeal.
