This book presents the first thorough examination of the complex relationship between movement and music in ballet. It includes a discussion of aural and visual perceptions and their effects, analyses of music with regard to its function in ballet, and sections dealing with the many problems facing ballet teachers and dancers when relating to their accompanists or orchestras, and vice versa. Elizabeth Sawyer's study is technical and analytical, but in order to make it available to both dancers and musicians she is careful not to use the technical language of one category without adequately qualifying it for the benefit of the other.
