Geraldine Morris’s new book on Frederick Ashton’s work will be available from 21st September from Dance Books.

Frederick Ashton’s Ballets: Style, Performance, Choreography is a ground-breaking study of style in six ballets by Ashton.  Central to the discussion are questions about performance and its connection with style.  What do we mean by style in dance? How do we identify it? How can it be retained? Does any of this matter?

Having dance with the Royal Ballet during the years when Ashton was the company’s Director, the author bring inside knowledge, informed and enlivened by years of studying the dances.  The result is enlightening but also controversial.
