The choreography of impresarios, revealed

Everything from early conceptual work through performance and touring are covered in this how-to book for dance management.

After establishing a mission statement; holding auditions; and considering the specific needs of music, sound, lighting, costuming, and make up, the manual provides would-be dance directors with basic theater terminology and the skills needed when planning marketing and public relations campaigns.
