Margery J. Turner was associate professor and coordinator of dance at Douglass College of Rutgers and author of Modern Dance for High School and College and The Dance Handbook.
“The first real exposition and guidance for teachers . . . in the formulation of lessons in movement exploration, improvisation, and the building of movement sequences into finished dances.”—American Dance Guild Newsletter

“Margery Turner has provided us with a straight-forward and a well-conceived manual on what is happening with the ‘nonliteral’ dance in America. . . . Special attention is given to the works of Alwin Nikolais, Merce Cunningham, Sybil Shearer, Erick Hawkins, Murray Lewis and Paul Taylor. . . . This work packs a good deal of solid information and professional awareness.”—Carnegie Magazine
