Bringing together all of the major modern dance techniques from the last 80 years, this engaging account is the first of its kind. The informative discussion starts by mapping the historical development of modern dance. In the late 19th century, a new dance emergednot yet known as modern dancethat rejected social strictures and ballet as well. With insight into the personalities and purposes of modern dance's vanguardincluding Martha Graham, Lester Horton, Jose Limon, and Merce Cunninghamthis compilation provides a comparative approach that will enable students to discern which technique best suits them and dispel the idea that there is a single, universal modern dance technique. There are also ideas for experimentation so that students can begin developing an aesthetic sense for not only what is pleasing to their artistic eye, but also for what technical ideas are exciting while their own body is in motion. Sample syllabi are included for teachers to incorporate the text into courses.
