About the Book

This is the definitive resource for understanding and practicing the influential dance technique developed by two pioneers of modern dance, Alwin Nikolais and Murray Louis.

The Nikolais/Louis Dance Technique is presented in a week-to-week classroom manual, providing an indispensable tool for teachers and students of this widely studied movement practice. Theoretical background for further reading is set off from the manual for those interested in deeper study. Their philosophy and methodology span a broad readership and offer an important addition to dance literature and American cultural history.

He has lectured and toured throughout the world, produced a series of dance videos, and continues to serve as artistic director of the Nikolais and Murray Louis Dance Company.
