Inside dance : essays by Murray Louis( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...Murray Louis has given us twenty essays so easy-going in style and so finely composed in structure that even complete nondancers will be pleased. Moving from such anecdote-filled, personal conversations on a dancer's life as 'On Sweat,' 'On Eating,' or 'On Home,' to such elegant set-pieces as 'On Classicism and Style,' 'On Revivals,' or 'On Nureyev,' Inside Dance is an entertaining introduction to dance for the layman, a serious work of criticism for the student, and a moving tribute to dancers everywhere." -- Book jacket flap
