"A revolutionary encounter with historical sources which Franko treats with erudition and imaginative analysis."--Dance Research
"It is not simply a question of 'seeing the new in the old,' but a recognition of the necessity of reconstruction for the purpose of aesthetic progress." --The Drama Review
"Mark Franko is a choreographer, dancer, dance theorist, and dance scholar, and this book reflects the full range of his artistic and intellectual commitments. It is a profoundly interdisciplinary work, which takes as its subject French court dance between 1580 and 1670 but which speaks most urgently to choreographers of the late twentieth century."
--Dance Research Journal
"By analyzing actual examples from [the French Court Ballet] era, Franko unlocks the deep communion between dance and text during that century, while simultaneously making a connection to the present day. Dance as Text: Ideologies of the Baroque Body impresses on many fronts."--Heather Desaulniers Dance Commentary
