Summary
Long before any dance performance is presented, an artistic collaboration takes place in the studio between dance teachers, musicians, and dancers. This book, a companion to the author's Music for the Dance: Reflections on a Collaborative Art, explores that collaboration, considering every level of training from creative movement for the very young to the daily workouts and rehearsals of professional ballet and modern concert dance companies. Designed to be easily accessible to those without musical literacy or an extensive knowledge of dance technique, the volume is appropriate both for dance teachers, musicians, and students, as well as for the parents and theater-goers who want to know more about what goes on behind the scenes. This book also encompasses styles of jazz dance and some ethnic forms in the African tradition. Based on Katherine Teck's experience as a studio musician and on her interviews with outstanding dance teachers and musicians, the book addresses a wide variety of musical concerns. For dance teachers such topics as finding and training an accompanist, communicating musical needs, working with a live musician in class, and collaborating for original choreography are covered. Subjects of interest to musicians include the existing repertoire for dance, how to analyze movement patterns, techniques of improvisation, how to find formal training, and career possibilities in dance. Finally, for the dancers themselves, the work provides an introduction to ways in which music and movement can relate. Of special interest to dance historians will be the author's interviews with leading artists in the fields of both ballet and modern dance. An appendix provides listings of further resources, as well as a checklist of important reminders for musicians and teachers. This work will be a valuable resource for courses in dance technique, musical collaboration, and dance history, as well as an important addition to both public and college libraries
