Exploring Dance Forms and Styles is excellent. The book should be part of every curriculum. It contains a wealth of information that can be used by educators at all levels and in many disciplines. Estelle Aden, Gainesville, Florida-Retired professor at Hofstra University (theatre arts) and Professional Actor. Exploring Dance Forms and Styles, is working very well with my 9th grade students in the South Bronx of NYC!!!
