Title: Dance and Music (A Guide to Dance Accompaniment for Musicians and Dance Teachers)
Author: Cavalli, Harriet
Price: $59.95

This work presents a definitive book on accompaniment, as well as the author's personal and often humorous look behind the scenes at the world of dance. It emphasizes the link between music and ballet technique, and the necessity of communication between dance teachers and their accompanists.

Harriet Cavalli lays the groundwork with descriptions of most musical forms used in the dance classroom and stresses the need for teachers to make music a living part of their classes. For the inexperienced accompanist, she describes the demands of the profession, as well as the qualities of dance steps and movements that facilitate the identification of suitable music. She also discusses the kinds of dance classes an accompanist may work in and offers a lengthy section on the functions of a pianist in a dance company.
