New dance leaders, and experienced leaders as well, can profit from the extensive and well-organized compilation of suggestions, ideas, traditions, and techniques that Dede Callichy has collected by observing dances in progress, interviewing long-time dance leaders, and from her own learning experience.It can be read all the way through for an overview, or used as a reference to explore particular topics. Even after 25 years of dancing and numerous leader training retreats, I still found ideas that were new to me, in addition to validation of much hard-earned knowledge. It would have been helpful to have read such a book at the beginning of my leadership journey.Dr. DiAnahita Kanoy, Dances of Universal Peace International, Certified Dance Leader, Dance & Musician MentorWith great patience and determination, Dede has succeeded in fulfilling the call to put together the Leader of the Dance, the first Australian contribution to the literature of the International Network for the Dances of Universal Peace.This well-researched book is a comprehensive guide to Dances of Universal Peace leadership.

The illustrations and photos enhance the written word and Dede's humour dances lightly through the pages.Dede verifies that trainee leaders evolve their skill under the caring guidance of their mentors, because experience is the best teacher. This book is a valuable and illuminating adjunct for supporting and enhancing leadership proficiency.
