Dance anecdotes stories from the worlds of ballet, Broadway, the ballroom, and modern dance by Mindy Aloff( file )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,356 libraries worldwide
"Many of the stories are amusing, but some are rueful, even sad, and a few are dark. Aloff concludes the volume with an essay about how dancing has been able to record its past, sometimes over centuries, and about how the art of the dancer, apparently as ephemeral in performance as cloud patterns, turns out, when conditions are hospitable, to be much more hardy and resilient than many people suppose." "A glorious promenade of stories that stretch a far back as classical times and as far afield as Japan, India, and Java, this superb collection will be treasured by everyone who loves dance, whether young or old."--BOOK JACKET
