Study 40 Different Types of Modern & Traditional Dance From All Around the World!

This Book of Dance focuses on 40 different modern and traditional styles of dance from around the world. Creative students will research the culture, origins, music, traditions, costumes, and movements of each dance.

The book is designed to appeal to both male and female students who enjoy dance and the arts.


Leaning prompts will require the student to use the internet to learn more about each type of dance. It is important to have access to videos or documentaries that will help the student to watch the dance in action.


Students will have the opportunity to research and draw costumes associated with each dance and draw examples of the dance moves.


Students who are not highly skilled in drawing may draw stick figures or comics! The book includes beautiful and accurate illustrations by Russian dancer and artist Serge Andreev.

A student who loves dance will treasure every page and keep this journal as a portfolio of their passionate learning experience. This book is ideal for teens but can be used with younger students, with additional assistance.
