Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatch from our warehouse in the UK.

From School Library JournalAdult/High School-This single-volume dictionary offers amazingly comprehensive coverage of the world of dance. Within its 25,000 entries, readers can find everything from a three-line explanation of fado to a three-page essay about Russia, the USSR, and ballet. Choreography, performers, composers, designers, companies, institutions, specific works and productions, terminology, films, and even dance shoes are all included. Longer essays address dance by country, historical period, and form. From classical ballet to hip-hop, fandango to Kabuki, Fonteyn to Fosse-they're all here. Dance dictionaries and/or encyclopedias with this breadth of coverage are hard to find. Although this dictionary has no illustrations, its all-inclusive format makes it an excellent purchase for any high school library.-Becky Ferrall, Stonewall Jackson High School, Manassas, VACopyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.--This text refers to the Hardcoveredition. From BooklistThis is a new version of the Concise Oxford Dictionary of Ballet (2d ed., 1987).Both authors have published widely in Britain on the subject of dance. In this volume, they have broadened coverage to include the history and practice of dance on the international stage. They state that the work reflects the unprecedented diversity of the art form as it enters the twenty-first century. They are careful to point out, however, that it does not attempt to include those dance forms that are confined to specific native cultures. They treat dance from a theatrical rather than an anthropological viewpoint.Entries are brief, usually one paragraph, but major individuals, institutions, and works receive longer ones. Lengthy works lists are provided for a very small number of well-known artists, like Balanchine. The dictionary is still concise , although that word is no longer part of the title. Some entries found in earlier versions have been dropped (for example, Katharine Abel, a famous Viennese dancer who died in 1892, is gone), probably to make room for new and updated entries. Among the new entries are Merce Cunningham's Beach Birds , which premiered in 1991 and was partially created using a computer program; the Ballets Trockaderos de Monte Carlo company; and the Pilobolus Dance Theater, which practices a form of sculptural dance that includes acrobatics, gymnastics, pantomime, and modern dance. Such entries represent the dictionary's acceptance of more diversity among the types of dance included.Perusing a sampling of entries, one finds specific works (Coppelia , Mass for Our Time , Riverdance ), companies (Berlin Opera Ballet, Rockettes, Stuttgart Ballet), musicians and composers, dance steps and styles, and surveys of dance in various countries. Attesting to the fact that classical ballet, tap, and modern dance are represented, there are entries for Alvin Ailey, Savion Glover, Martha Graham, Gene Kelly, Rudolph Nureyev, Bill Robinson (Bojangles), and Tommy Tune, to name a few. The work cannot match the depth of coverage in the two-volume encyclopedia International Dictionary of Ballet (St. James, 1993) and the recent International Encyclopedia of Modern Dance (St. James, 1998). However, it packs an amazing amount of information into a small amount of space. Very affordable, it is well worth adding to a dance collection in any library and provides a compact, handy way to access dance facts quickly. REVWRCopyright American Library Association.
