Dance for JoyChronicle Books
Dance can be radical self-expression, community celebration, revolutionary protest, or pure elation. Whether you’re a professional ballet dancer or the first person on the dance floor at parties, whether you dance in your living room or out in the streets, you know the power of moving to music. Artist and author Aurélia Durand bottles the lightning of dance in these vibrantly illustrated pages. You’re invited to embark on a world tour of styles, explore a who’s-who of iconic and inspiring dancers, and celebrate all the amazing ways movement can make you feel: empowered, fabulous, free. With joyful affirmations and playful interactive content, this book brings together culture, history, and neon illustrations that practically dance off the page. A foreword by popular jam skater Oumi Janta reflects on the magic of Durand’s artwork. This is for anyone who feels a rhythm and the need to move with it.
