Editorial Reviews

Author Anne Dublin has chosen a nice diversity of women, from many different parts of the world and with many different styles of dance...She also knows the vocabulary of dance, and includes definitions of the “Forms of Dance,” as well as a glossary, in the back. Her lists of “Sources & Resources” for each dancer are quite impressive... Using black and white photographs helps ties together images from various eras and sources into a coherent whole... any child interested in dance from age nine up couldn’t help but be inspired by this book.

Wrapped in Foil

In a nutshell: Inspirational profiles of 10 females dancers committed to making a difference...readers can expect to find more than basic biographies...its short chapters and casual tone make it a good educational resource for young students.

Dance Teacher Magazine

What makes this book so interesting is the author's truly extensive research into the life of each dancer. the diversity of these dancers' lives offers something for any reader; one need not be a dancer or particularly interested in dance to benefit from the value this book offers.
