Description

A very important contribution to the literature of folk-dancing is made in this book, here for the first time, a body of folk-dances of Finland, sufficiently great to picture the national atmosphere and artistic spirit is presented. Elizabeth Burchenal used to say she likes to dance Italian dances until she feels like an Italian; one feels that she has danced Danish and Finland dances until she feels like a Scandinavian and somehow has managed to carry the spirit over through the printed page, so that through these dances a new breadth of horizon and a deeper appreciation of the national life of these peoples is given the American users of the books. Sixty-five dances of Finland are given with music and complete directions for performance of the dances, - a welcome addition to her previous books. "Folk-Dances and Singing Games," "Folk Dance Music." and "Dances of the People."show more
