"Alvin Ailey (January 5, 1931 – December 1, 1989) was an African-American choreographer and activist who founded the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and the Ailey School in New York City. He is credited with popularizing modern dance and revolutionizing African-American participation in 20th-century concert dance. His company gained the nickname "Cultural Ambassador to the World" because of its extensive international touring. Ailey's choreographic masterpiece Revelations is believed to be the best known and most often seen modern dance performance. In 1977, Ailey was awarded the Spingarn Medal from the NAACP. He received the Kennedy Center Honors in 1988. In 2014, President Barack Obama selected Ailey to be a posthumous recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. " (from Wikipedia). Very Good .

"Murray was inspired by a casual remark made by William Jennings Bryan one evening at the hotel: "... You know, I have a fine idea on how you can collect your money. Just teach 'em with the left foot and don't tell 'em what to do with the right foot until they pay up!" Murray thought about Bryan's remark, and devised the idea of teaching dance steps with footprint diagrams supplied by mail. Within a couple of years, over 500,000 dance courses had been sold. On April 24, 1925, Murray married his famous dance partner, Kathryn Kohnfelder (September 15, 1906, Jersey City, New Jersey – August 6, 1999, Honolulu, Hawaii) , whom he had met at a radio station in New Jersey. She had been in the audience while he was broadcasting a dance lesson.". Very Good in Good dust jacket .

Breakdancing
New York: Avon Books, 1984. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. ISBN: 0380881535. B&W Illustrations; This is a trade sized paperback book with illustrated cardstock covers and a stapled spine. The book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. There is one small nick / bump to the bottom spine end of the book cover. The text pages are clean and bright. "Breakdancing, also called breaking or b-boying/b-girling, is an athletic style of street dance. While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, breakdancing mainly consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. Breakdancing is typically set to hip-hop, funk, and breakbeat music, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns. The dance style originated primarily among Puerto Rican and African-American youths (many of them former members of street gangs, such as the Black Spades, the Young Spades, and the Baby Spades) during the mid-1970s in the Bronx. The dance spread worldwide due to popularity in the media, especially in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.". Very Good+ .
