An expansion of The Physics of Dance (Schirmer, 1984), featuring a new co-author who is a professional dancer, and major new sections on the pas de deux, figure skating, and ice dancing. A non-technical explanation of how dancers can achieve better, safer performances through an understanding of how the laws of gravity, momentum, and energy affect dancing bodies--enhanced with specially commissioned stop-action and sequence photographs by Martha Swope, as well as detailed technical drawings. A 30-minute videocassette illustrating the principles of physics involved in dance is included. The book (871326-5, $22) and video (871327-3, $35) are also available individually. Annotation c.
