2 Bland, Alexander and Percival, John Men Dancing - Performers and Performances
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1984 0297780735 / 9780297780731 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A very large format volume of 176 pages. Profusely illustrated. This book celebrates one of the biggest comebacks in the history of the arts. The most striking post-war development in the world of the arts has been the emergence of dance as a popular art form; and the most striking development in the world of dance has been the re-emergence of the male dancer. The two phenomena are not unconnected. Originating as an activity for men, dance has been dominated for over a century by women. Though admired and envied, these remote ethereal creatures were too far from ordinary life to become the subjects of general interest; they were the precious idols of a select few. The picture now is radically different. The book analyses the role of man in dance. It sketches the historical background and examines, for the first time, the different qualities, both physiological and psychlogical, that make up the various types of dancer. It presents a gallery of the finest artists, all vividly illustrated, giving attention to many from all over the world and through the ages, but concentrating on those extraordinary dancers like Nureyev and Baryshnikov. PLEASE NOTE: A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.33 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST
