He displays the ADF for the multidimensional creature it is--a center for performance, a school for the creative of our choreographers and set designers, and a provider of community and professional services.
Anderson describes the productions, analyzes artistic policies, and examines the creative energy that has enabled ADF to unite the diverse facets of dance. In addition to providing the first full account of the festival's history, "The American Dance Festival "contains listings of staff, faculty, and season-by-season repertory, as well as cast lists of all festival premieres. The festival has been described as "a multi-purpose and many -splendored affair." Anderson shows why dancegoers enthusiastically agree with this assessment.
