Reviews

"This title explores four movement themes: moving, making, collaborating, and living. ... Olsen provides useful ideas, structure, and support for those interested in movement exploration."--Barbara Kundanis, Library Journal

"This latest book offers dancers a way to explore their craft at a deeper level in a 31-day somatic guide. For every day, Olsen presents section prompts that push readers to do, to dance, to speak and to present--but also to write. She encourages them to explore a different discipline by placing the dance stories of their lives on paper, and suggests a number of angles from which to do so. Olsen's book could be instructive to women's memoirists as well. ... She employs global visual images, stories, and practices. ... Olsen's style serves as an example of how to bring creativity to memoir, even though Olsen herself may not term her book a memoir."--Lanie Tankard, Women's Memoirs "Olsen finds her fresh edge with a holistic vision with which to dance, make dances and move through life."--Desir e Dunbar, Dance International Magazine "This book provides contemporary dance makers with a guide for developing personal creative process. ... Well-chosen black-and-white photos and illustrations support the text."--S.E. Friedler, Choice
