Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0871272563, Paperback)
The Spanish dance terms defined and described in this reference include basic positions, movements, movement sequences, and directions; types of movement; movement qualities; dances; dance genres; musical terms; types of people associated with the dance; percussion and vocal sounds that accompany dance; and precepts governing the dance. Most of the entries fall into one of four categories: terms with general application in Spanish dance, those associated with escuela bolera, regional dance terms, and flamenco dance terms. Accompanying each term is its phonetic pronunciation, meaning, derivation, and application in Spanish dance. The entries for movements or movement sequences include scores in Labanotation, and drawings illustrating the movement. Included are the basic rhythms and melodic lines for 15 flamenco dances, and a careful and thorough cross-listing of terms. This replaces 0806125322.
