This is an auction for DANCE: THE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF DANCE IN NEW ZEALAND by Tara Jahn-Werner.

"This gorgeous book presents the broad spectrum of ballet and dance historically in New Zealand - where it has come from, what has influenced the art form, who has been involved, and who are the present movers and shakers. It is beautiful to look at, with striking photos and ephemera, attractive poster designs, programme covers plus illustrations. There's great information and anecdotes on personalities, plus interesting facts in separate breakout boxes. Its themes include:

* the influence of overseas companies on dance in New Zealand from 1913 to the present

* the advent of a national identity with the establishment of the Royal New Zealand Ballet

* the emergence of modern dance in the 1930s and

* the contemporary dance scene today

"Each chapter features a discussion on dance styles, the vigour of the artistic personalities involved and the social milieu in which they operated. DANCE is a very thorough and lively examination of the dance scene in New Zealand."


"Now a consultant in the creative industries, Tara Jahn-Werner was previously in the Business School at the University of Auckland, where she was Director of the MBA and Master of Management. She was also Director, Arts Management Programmes, at the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries. She is a well-known arts journalist and critic. For twenty five years she wrote regularly on music and dance for the Auckland Star and the New Zealand Herald."
