I knew that DanceKinesis was the missing dimension in Ballroom and Latin dance training and performing, but I needed to put it into a format that would be most helpful to dancers. I sought the opinions of many social and professional dancers world-wide, and, now, this world-class body, movement, and dance training system is the tried and proven result of their responses. DanceKinesis, dancing by a more natural movement and rhythm, is the newest and fastest growing concept in dance training, and is already being used, enjoyed, revered, and copied by dancers of every level. DanceKinesis does teach dancing, but it first teaches dance. The theories and practices of DK may be applied to all of the partnership dances. It focuses on the body's natural movement, fundamentals and principles, and the 7 Laws of Motion. It turns these principles into dance. The techniques and traditional studies of dance are then applied to the individual's natural movements as a means to; define and characterize the dance desired, and, to control and maintain its stylistic movements, rhythm/s, timing/s, and interpretation/s. DanceKinesis may be used with all existing syllabi of all modern Ballroom and Latin dance schools. The text begins with studies the psychology of why we dance. It continues with titles such as "Corrective Posture Arc" and "The 3 Body Tiers" which help to better understand, rebuild and/or retrain the body to feel better in everyday life as well as dance. Others such as "The 7 Natural Laws," "The 4 Schools [Studies] of Ballroom Dance," and "The 2 Energies of Ballroom and Latin Dance" help to better understand and better create proper and more efficient body movement. Did you know that there are at least 3 primary rhythms to most pieces of music? Do you know why it is not good to learn or teach dance by using the terms 'Slow' and 'Quick'? Did you know that the terms 'Lead' and 'Follow' are technically the opposite of what most persons b

Gene Kelly is already visible here: the attempt to make dancekinetic and to shape

Irresistible and authoritative, The Movie Musical! is an in-depth look at the singing, dancing, happy-making world of Hollywood musicals, beautifully illustrated in color and black-and-white--an essential text for anyone who's ever laughed, cried, or sung along at the movies. Leading film historian Jeanine Basinger reveals, with her trademark wit and zest, the whole story of the Hollywood musical--in the most telling, most incisive, most detailed, most gorgeously illustrated book of her long and remarkable career. From Fred Astaire, whom she adores, to La La Land, which she deplores, Basinger examines a dazzling array of stars, strategies, talents, and innovations in the history of musical cinema. Whether analyzing a classic Gene Kelly routine, relishing a Nelson-Jeanette operetta, or touting a dynamic hip hop number (in the underrated Idlewild), she is a canny and charismatic guide to the many ways that song and dance have been seen--and heard--on film. With extensive portraits of everyone from Al Jolson, the Jazz Singer; to Doris Day, whose iconic sunniness has overshadowed her dramatic talents; from Deanna Durbin, that lovable teen-star of the '30s and '40s; to Shirley T. and Judy G.; from Bing to Frank to Elvis; from Ann Miller to Ann-Margret; from Disney to Chicago . . . focusing on many beloved, iconic films (Top Hat; Singin' in the Rain; Meet Me in St. Louis; The Sound of Music) as well as unduly obscure gems (Eddie Cantor's Whoopee!; Murder at the Vanities; Sun Valley Serenade; One from the Heart), this book is astute, informative, and pure pleasure to read.
