Summary "How can so complex an art and its craft and the teaching of that art be communicated? Daniel Lewis in his book has come at this problem through five avenues: related photographs that suggest style and atmosphere, drawings that strip down movement to its anatomic essentials and still incorporate beauty of motion, verbal description of sequence and detail, Labanotation to provide accurate and definitive 'notes' (as in a musical score) and, finally, notes to teachers, so important in humanizing the analytical nature of the task." -- Foreward
