Drawing upon years of experience as a dancer, and dance teacher, Ann-Marie Williams exposes every aspect of the world of dance -- from different dance styles from around the world to tips on choreography, costume design, performance, staging, and even managing a potential career. She's also brought along the expert opinions of a number of other dancers, set designers, choreographers, and reality TV judges, who share great tips and anecdotes throughout. But there's no need to get stage fright -- Learn to Speak Dance isn't an audition, a lecture, or even a class. It's simply a revelation of just how far your own two feet can take you.
