Modern Dancing and Dancers
Hardcover - English

First published in 1912, Crawford Flitch's seminal book takes as its text the transition in the theatre, in the late nineteenth century, from dance to spectacle, as producers responded to, and perhaps helped to shape, public taste, and the consequent decline of classical ballet. Flitch is sharply critical of this decline, but sees a light on the horizon in the shape of the arrival of Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, whose dancers and early performances he discusses in some detail. The chapters are: The ancient and modern attitude towards the dance, The rise of the ballet, The heyday of the ballet, The Skirt dance, The Serpentine Dance, The high kickers, The revival of classical dancing, The Imperial Russian Ballet, The repertory of the Russian Ballet, The Russian dancers, The English Ballet, Oriental and Spanish dancing, The revival of the Morris Dance, and The future of the dance.
