"A polar bear who lives in Canada in the Arctic needs help. Temperatures at his home aren't as cold as they used to be, and the ice is melting. When it's cold, polar bears walk across the ice to find seals. They can walk for a long time but can't swim as far. If the sea ice disappears, they won't be able to hunt for food, putting the already endangered bears further in jeopardy"--

"What is the secret to boundless energy, vitality and a fearless spirit? Millions across the globe have been inspired by 97-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch-- WWII French Resistance fighter, model, actress, film producer, wine connoisseur, competitive ballroom dancer, and yoga master. In 2012, she was named "Oldest Yoga Teacher" by Guinness World Records. The twinkle in her eyes and the brightness of her spirit capture you. Her YouTube videos have garnered over two million views. In June 2015, she wowed judges on America's Got Talent dancing with her 26-year-old partner to Pitbull's "Fireball." With Peter Pan-like endless youth, she says, "In my head I'm still in my 20's, and I have no intention of ever growing up." How did she get this way and how can we exude such light? [This] is an inspirational autobiography that shows us what is possible-- that we each can live to our highest potential by inhaling life, exhaling strife and dancing to our own rhythm. Through Tao's reflections, we are given the gift of insights from almost a century of wisdom that can be applied to our modern-day challenges. We learn her "secrets" to vitality while taking a soulful odyssey of love and loss, hope and joy"--Amazon.com.

From his musical beginnings as a piano player in gambling houses and society cafes, Louis Horst (1884-1964) became one of the chief architects of modern dance in the twentieth century. Accepting a job as musical director for the Denishawn Dance Company in 1915, Horst set out on a remarkable career that would eventually embrace composing, theorizing, and teaching. He had an incalculable influence on many important dancers of the day, particularly Martha Graham, who was his student and intimate for decades. Horst's biography, recounted here in rich detail by Janet Mansfield Soares, constitutes a crucial and colorful chapter in the story of modern American culture. At the center of this story is Horst's relationship with Martha Graham. "I did everything for Martha," Horst said late in life. Indeed, as her lover, ally, and lifelong confidante, he worked with such conviction to make her the undisputed dance leader in the concert world that Graham herself would later remark: "Without him I could not have achieved anything I have done." Drawing on the conversation and writings of Horst and his colleagues, Soares reveals the inner workings of this passionate commitment and places it firmly in the context of dance history. Horst emerges as a man of extraordinary personality and multifaceted talent. Soares shows how his dance scores, such as the one for Graham's Primitive Mysteries, became models for America's leading composers. She describes Horst's musical relationship with important figures such as Doris Humphrey and Helen Tamaris, as well as their German counterparts. She documents his founding and editing of the journal Dance Observer in an attempt to win recognition for American dance, an enterprise that established him as a leading critic of his time. Above all, Soares evokes Horst as a teacher. At the Neighborhood Playhouse, the Bennington School of Dance, the American Dance Festival, and Juilliard, he translated modernist theories into practical means of expression for dance, thus leaving his mark on future generations of dancers and choreographers. Soares has written the first comprehensive biography of this pivotal figure in the dance world. Richly illustrated, sensitive to intimate detail and historical nuance, it reveals the raison d'etre underlying Horst's theories and practices and offers insight into the development of dance as an art form under his virtually unchallenged rule. Janet Mansfield Soares first met Louis Horst as a young dancer at Juilliard. She became his assistant while pursuing a career as performer and choreographer under his tutelage. Since 1964 she has taught dance composition courses based on his work at Juilliard and at Barnard College, where she is currently Chair of the Dance Department. This book is the product of ten years of research and writing and a lifelong enthusiasm for the art of choreography fostered by Louis Horst.

Ever since her grandparents gave her a DVD of Swan Lake, twelve-year-old Jenny Spark has wanted to be a ballet dancer. But on her first day of ballet class, she suffers a crippling panic attack. She’s too terrified to practice in front of the other kids, and as for actually performing for an audience? Forget it. Yet Jenny refuses to give up her dream of making dance part of her life. With determination and a little deception, Jenny figures out how to observe ballet class without actually participating, and she practices in the safety of her home. Then Jenny meets her polar opposite: Ara Reyes, a bold, spontaneous, and accident-prone girl who longs for the spotlight but is overlooked in favor of the school’s star performer. The girls’ friendship blossoms as they help each other find their real talents. Ara’s dancing takes a leap forward, and Jenny discovers she has a hidden gift for choreography. With the support of the school’s newest teacher, Jenny’s original ballet might just make it on stage … but will she? Charming and inspiring, Dancing on the Inside shows how pursuing our passions can often lead to wonderful and unexpected results. “Dancing on the Inside is a fine and very much recommended read for younger readers who may be facing stage fright themselves.” —Midwest Book Review
