The period 1945 to 1965 was an astonishingly creative time for Australian dance. Dancers from the 1930s Ballets Russes tours and modernists who had settled in this country were teaching, performing and developing companies. The spectacular results included long, brilliant seasons by the Borovansky Ballet and the National Theatre Ballet Company, the formation of the Victorian Ballet Guild and the eventual foundation of the Australian Ballet. Smaller classical and modern groups sprang up in every state, some going on to gain international reputations.

Illustrated with a wealth of photographs and designs for decor and costumes, Australia Dances: Creating Australian dance 1945-1965 surveys the major companies, large and small, modern dance, the beginnings of Aboriginal theatrical dance and the various teaching codes which became established. Selected works from company repertoires are discussed, making the book a rich and valuable resource for students and scholars as well as an essential addition to every dance lover's library.

'It is a beautifully produced and designed publication.' - Michelle Potter, Canberra
