Dynamic Women Dancers

Women's Hall of Fame Series

by: Anne Dublin
Dancing to Change the World... The women profiled here have become masters of their art, dancing and choreographing their way around the world. All of them have helped transform their style of dance, paving the way for the next generation. As you read about their lives, you will see that these women share a commitment to making a difference in the world of dance and beyond. Anna Pavlova, one of history's greatest ballerinas, brought classical ballet to all corners of the globe. Geeta Chandran, a master of Indian Bharatanatyam, has used dance to protest violence against women. Judith Marcuse choreographs dances that explore such issues as teen suicide and the environment. Pearl Primus fought against racism, bringing Caribbean and African influence to modern dance. Their passion has left a lasting mark on the world.


Read the review in Dance Teacher Magazine!

"In a nutshell: Inspirational profiles of 10 females dancers committed to making a difference...readers can expect to find more than basic biographies...its short chapters and casual tone make it a good educational resource for young students." Dance Teacher Magazine, January 11, 2009

"Author Anne Dublin has chosen a nice diversity of women, from many different parts of the world and with many different styles of dance...She also knows the vocabulary of dance, and includes definitions of the “Forms of Dance,” as well as a glossary, in the back. Her lists of “Sources & Resources” for each dancer are quite impressive... Using black and white photographs helps ties together images from various eras and sources into a coherent whole... any child interested in dance from age nine up couldn’t help but be inspired by this book." -Wrapped in Foil, June 21, 2010 

"What makes this book so interesting is the author's truly extensive research into the life of each dancer. the diversity of these dancers' lives offers something for any reader; one need not be a dancer or particularly interested in dance to benefit from the value this book offers." -Resource Links, October 2009
