I did not know what to expect when I ordered this little gem on-line. I am presently working on a large piece of dance theater and I really found this book to be helpful and encouraging. It's unusual style added to the push to think more creatively. It gave me new found bravery!
Weernis
Great read!
Gathris
If you don't know what to get the budding choreographer in your life, this might be the one. It's an inspiring book.
Ranterl
This is a great book for choreographers of all levels. Written in an easy and accessible way of independent paragraphs, it is both inviting and fun.
Akelevar
I was disappointed. As a teacher and choreographer, I was expecting this book to be more like a TOOL or guideline, rather than a scatter-brained collection of the authors opinion on choreographing.
Thoginn
I recommend this book to anyone, I mean anyone who choreographs. It can speak to the beginning as well as the accomplished choreographer. It's easy and fun to read.
I purchased this as a gift for my granddaughter; she loves it. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in learning and teaching dance.
