The American Dance Festival has been a magnet drawing together diverse artists, styles, theories, and dance training methods; from this creative mix the ADF has emerged as the sponsor of performances by some of the greatest choreographers and dance companies of our time. Jack Anderson traces the development of ADF from its beginnings in New England to its seasons at Duke University. He displays the ADF for the multidimensional creature it is—a center for performances, a school for the best young dancers in the country, and a provider of community and professional services.

Anderson, dance critic for the New York Times , has written a history of one of the most important festivals of modern dance in America. Stemming from a Bennington College dance festival in the 1930s, the American Dance Festival was founded at Connecticut College in New London in 1948, and since 1978 has been located at Duke University. Drawing together all of the major names in modern dance, this annual summer program of classes and performances always includes new works by major choreographers. Anderson has compiled a year-by-year analysis of the programs offered each summer, describing each new production and giving quotes from critics. Useful as a history of one aspect of modern dance in America, this is not a necessary item except for all-inclusive dance collections. Marcia L. Perry, Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass.
