The text is enhanced by diagrams and 83 complete musical examples, providing a wealth of repertoire choices." "One of the most comprehensive books to acknowledge the intimate link between music and ballet techniques, Dance and Music emphasizes the necessity of effective communication between dance teachers and their accompanists. Cavalli lays the groundwork with descriptions of most musical forms used in the dance classroom and stresses the need for teachers to make music a living part of their classes." "For the inexperienced accompanist, she describes the pianistic demands of the profession, as well as the qualities of dance steps and movements that will facilitate the identification of suitable music. She also discusses the kinds of dance classes an accompanist may work in and offers a lengthy section on the functions of a pianist in a dance company."--Jacket." ;
