Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is known for incorporating the elements of ballet, modern dance, West African and Indian dance, and yoga into its performances. Friedman (First Lessons in Ballet), who was formerly with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, here draws on techniques taught at the Ailey School to create a different kind of workout book. Friedman explains step by step 52 basic moves and positions, which can be combined in long or short workouts. The elements include movements designed to build balance, strength, stretching ability, and good posture, as well as warmups and cool-downs. In 250 color pictures that are an inspiration in themselves, dancers from the Ailey company clearly delineate the proper execution of each exercise, showing their grace and strength in each shot. This is just the ticket for those who prefer dance to standard aerobics-and in between workouts, it's a terrific coffee-table book. With a foreword by Ailey alumna Judith Jameson.-Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
