In this landmark anthology, dance critic Mindy Aloff (Hippo in a Tutu) brings together an astonishing array of writers - dancers and dance creators, impresarios and critics, and enthusiastic literary observers - to trace the evolution of American dance in all its many forms and locales, classical, modern, and vernacular. The range of perspectives on display is staggering. Here are the most acclaimed dance critics; the most inventive and influential choreographers and dancers; and a dazzling roster of major literary figures.
