The author gives a humorous and informative overview of dance, and the listener quickly falls into his narration. Henry Alford takes a memoirish approach to his topic, so listeners will glean a bit about all things dance--from quick bios on the likes of Twyla Tharp and Isadora Duncan to an understanding of new expressive movements in the art form. He takes a while to warm up, but then he finds his way. He is a good writer--his turns of phrase are excellent--and a funny one, and it's hard to imagine anyone else understanding the inflections, nuances, sarcasm, and drama he brings to this audiobook. With the memoir approach, he's also a subject, so listeners should expect to hear a little about growing up, boyfriends, and other personal topics. An enjoyable overview for both the dance aficionado and the uninitiated. M.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
