When Henry Alford wrote about his experience with a Zumba class for the New York Times, little did he realize that it was the start of something much bigger. Dance would grow and take on many roles for Alford: exercise, confidence builder, an excuse to travel, a source of ongoing wonder and—when he dances with Alzheimer's patients—even a kind of community service. Equal parts memoir and cultural history, Alford's book surveys a wide range of forms—including ballet, hip-hop, jazz, ballroom, tap, and contact improvisation—and pays tribute to luminaries ranging from Bob Fosse to George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp to Arthur Murray. Rich in insight and humor, Alford creates a moving portrait of how dance can express all things human.
