Ages 3-9

Kuklin's stunning photographs of dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones float on the page with a genuine sense of air, space, and motion. Kuklin expresses a strong awareness of the human form, along with a way to communicate about the external and internal aspects of dance. Jones's supple, poetic text is breif but evocative of both the movement and the mystery of dance. "When I am dancing, I can fly high / and soar through the air. ...When I am dancing, I am everyone / and I am only one." From various perspectives readers see expressive hands, legs, feet, and arms. The crisp white pages and flowing typeface offset Kuklin's full-color photographs of Bill T. Jones' expressive movement. That movement is Dance! Highly Commended, 1999 Charlotte Zolotow Award.
