Dance Anecdotes: Stories from the Worlds of Ballet, Broadway, the Ballroom, and Modern Dance
Mindy Aloff, a leading dance critic who has written for The Nation, The New Republic, and The New Yorker, has brought together this marvelous book of stories by and about dancers. It is filled with entertaining and informative anecdotes that capture the boundless variety and richness of dance as an art, a tradition, a profession, a pastime, an obsession, a reality, and, for the dancer, an ideal.
Esteemed dance critic Aloff offers up a delicious and provocative pastiche of anecdotes from the world of dance. She describes it as "the kind of collection that one might pick up in a country inn on a rainy day and while away an hour browsing through," which is too modest: the book is easy to pick up but hard to put down.
