Explore the world of dance from the Charleston to krump with this full-color resource. Popular Dance: From Ballroom to Hip-Hop takes readers on a journey through the trends and developments in popular dancing from European nobles during the Renaissance and early Baroque periods in Europe through 21st-century America. In full color, this new book explores the social and historical elements that influence the waltz, the Charleston, jitterbug, and urban street dancing (such as krumping), teaching readers about the continuous crossover between theatrical performance and dancing for pleasure. A look inside the artistic process shows how dancers not only invent new ways to express themselves, but also borrow, refine, and embellish existing forms to widen the scope of popular dance. Helpful features such as sidebars, further references, a glossary, and a chronology round out this informative resource.
