This interesting book gathered five essays on the different world methods of free dance that were followed in Russia in the 1920s. They were written by practicians, pedagogues of Leningrad studios Z. Punina, Iu. Kharlamov, N Foregger, A. Glebova, Z. Verbova and collective of Heptachor school. The text is illustrated with spectacular group photographs of dancers in moments of performances. The movement of free dance flared up in Russia, survived after October Revolution and absorbed into the new life as contrasting with the pre-revolution noble dances. One of methods, eurhythmics, extremely widespread in the Soviet schools as basis of the healthy lifestyle.
