Summary "Your Move establishes a fresh and original framework for looking at movement. Examining the basic elements of dance, termed the Movement Alphabet, the authors use illustrations of basic movement possibilities and concepts combined with simple Motif symbols to provide a new way to see, to understand, to teach, and to choreograph dance. Each copy of Your Move comes with a CD of the music especially composed for the many Reading Studies."--BOOK JACKET.
