Ballet, an illustrated history by Mary Clarke( Book )

34 editions published between 1973 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A definitive history of ballet which combines a stimulating text with a profusion of attractive and unusual images. First published twenty years ago, it has been fully updated for this new edition." "This comprehensive history charts the emergence of ballet in the Renaissance courts and follows its complex development right up to the remarkable explosion of ballet and modern dance in our time in Europe and America. It examines the arrival during the eighteenth century of ballet in the professional theatre and follows the expansion of dancing techniques from the early dancing masters through the Romantic period and the golden age of the ballerina. It explores the late nineteenth-century masterpieces of the Imperial Russian Ballet, the glories of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, and the fascinating development of modern ballet throughout the world." "Mary Clarke and Clement Crisp have successfully collaborated on many ballet projects. Their names have become synonymous with dancing expertise. This joint work provides an absorbing, compelling and lucid account of this dance form. It is an authoritative work of reference which will be an inspiring guide for both the dedicated student and the enthusiast newly discovering the pleasures of ballet."--BOOK JACKET

Dance on Screen by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this revelatory new documentary, director Reiner E. Moritz poses the question: How has the media influenced dance in the twentieth century and vice versa? Over this period an extensive archive of beautiful choreography, performed by the finest dancers has accumulated on film and television, resulting in a major dispersion of dance through the media. In addition, new art forms such as dance movies and ballet films have emerged from this development in moving images, where dance is created specifically for the camera. 'A History Of Dance On Screen' contains an impressive amount of archive footage featuring the greatest dancers and choreographers of the twentieth and twenty first centuries, framed by in-depth interviews with great personalities of the contemporary dance scene--featuring Alvin Ailey, Pina Bausch, Maurice Béjart, Matthew Bourne, Margot Fonteyn, Martha Graham, John Neumeier, Rudolf Nureyev, Anna Pavlova, Roland Petit, Sasha Waltz and many others"--Arthaus website

Nijinsky by Richard Buckle( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nijinsky--one of the towering figures in the history of ballet--was unique as a dancer, interpretive artist and choreographic pioneer. His breathtaking performances with the Ballet Russe in the seasons from 1909 to 1913 took western Europe by storm. His avant-garde choreography for "L'Après-midi d'un faune" and "Le Sacre du printemps," which provoked battles in the theater and the press, is now regarded as the foundation of the modern dance. Drawing on personal conversations with countless people who knew and worked with Nijinsky and many years of far-flung and painstaking research, Richard Buckle has written what is surely destined to become the definitive Nijinsky biography.-from dust jacket
