Description

Learn what modern dance really is, and how it differs from other forms of dance. Find out how it started; read about the early pioneers, such as Isadora Duncan, who thought that classical ballet was 'ugly'. Discover what the future holds, and how you could have a career as a dancer. Then read how the show must go on, no matter what, in the short story 'A Show for Ghana'.

Glitz! Glamour! Drama! Delve into the fantastic world of the performing arts with this book from the Starstruck series. A non-fiction section is followed by a fiction story on the same topic. Filled with striking photographs and illustrations, this book is ideal for any child who has an interest in an aspect of the world behind the stage curtain.



Reviews

"We have been studying dance for four years now and we would recommend Modern Dance to the younger pupils. It is easy to follow and is full of good information."
