Synopsis

Modern Dance Set One by Steve Rickard, Anita Loughrey

Learn what modern dance really is, and how it differs from other forms of dance. Find out how it started; read about the early pioneers, such as Isadora Duncan, who thought that classical ballet was 'ugly'. Discover what the future holds, and how you could find a career as a dancer. Then read how the show must go on, no matter what, in the short story A Show for Ghana. Modern Dance is part of the Starstruck series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. This series is designed for children interested in the performing arts. Each book is highly illustrated with both photos and colour illustrations. The text is carefully written to make it easier for reluctant and struggling readers. The first half of the book is non-fiction, followed by a fiction story on the same topic. Modern Dance is ideal for reluctant readers aged 8 to 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7 years.

Reviews

We have been studying dance for four years now and we would recommend Modern Dance to the younger pupils. It is easy to follow and is full of good information. Kirsty Wilson and Danielle Kelly, Gracemount High
