The complete guide for Australian Dancers, Lisner, Charles
2 Lisner, Charles The complete guide for Australian Dancers
Australia Rigby 1988 072702048X / 9780727020482 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
182 indexed pages including illutrations. This is an indispensable book for all Australian dancers, ranging from the raw beginner to the accomplished professional, and for parents seeking information on every possible facet of classical and contemporary dance. The basic elements of dance are examined and the book also looks at ballet studies at all levels and deals with such often asked questions as; at what age should a child begin studying ballet, what are the available teaching methods, and how to find a good teacher. The Complete Guide for Australian Dancers also explores all of the opportunities for employment, for careers from a dancer to a stage manager, and other useful information includes a complete list of the major teaching institutions, dance companies and dance groups in Australia, and a glossary of French balletic terms. Anne Woolliams fonner Artistic Director of the Australian Ballet and Founding-Dean of Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts, says. Charles Lisner is one of those rare visionaries who not only had a dream, hut put all his energies into realising it. If Queensland now has a flourishing and much- loved ballet company, a selective audience and a healthy dance activity producing artists for the future, it is very largely due to this man. His influence has heen felt all over Australia and his informed writings have already heen snapped up by dance lovers and lihraries alike. His new hook, The Complete Guide for Australian Dancers, will most certainly fill a large gap in Australia 's literature on dance, and I can think of no hetter person to have produced it. This is a tanning / browning book with moderata weas and creases in the cover.
