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.
