ID finds some great dance books, a DVD, and even a dance-movie-trailer to inspire

It's definitely winter now in Northern California, and its time to snuggle up fireside with some good books, a DVD or two, and maybe a cool performance. ID has some thoughts below:

 For local dance interest, see Alonzo King's LINES Ballet luxurious new dance photography book with "never before published photos of the Company created by photographer RJ Muna as well as several by Marty Sohl. Designed by Company Co-Founder and Creative Director Robert Rosenwasser, the book includes text by Alonzo King."

For an international view, don't miss the "beautifully produced new book by Royal Ballet dancer Andrej Uspenski's  collection of exclusive photographs which shines the spotlight on the Royal Ballet..bringing the reader into the magical world of ballet."

Long time dancer, teacher, choreographer and Dance Magazine Editor, Wendy Perron has compiled a book of her essays:
“I’ve never read a collection like Perron’s engrossing Through the Eyes of a Dancer. She reviews and ponders four decades of developments and enduring values—both in dance and in the life of her performing-choreographing-writing self. Currently editor-in-chief of Dance Magazine, Perron displays an uncanny ability both to view art works from a distance and to burrow into their hearts.”—Deborah Jowitt, author of Jerome Robbins: His Life, His Theater, His Dance

For an in-house-dance-night check out:
