Tango, waltz, square dance, hip-hop, ballet, swing, jazz, charus line, afro-cuban-dance has come from every culture and corner of the world. Almost every known culture on the planet has a dance tradition. Photographer Brian Lanker travelled across America for one year documenting numerous manifestations of dance. This beautifully photographed book features interviews with dancers, some famous and some not, and examines the importance of the art form in their lives.
