Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anyone interested in dance will love this book." - Robin Esrock, Travel Writer and TV Host (Word Travels on National Geographic Channel, Travel Channel, OLN/City TV)

"Beautiful research." - Shelagh Rogers, CBC Radio One's The Next Chapter

"Dancing Through History is a strong pick for travel and culture collections, highly recommended." - The Midwest Book Review

"If you're a dance lover, Dancing Through History is definitely worth taking a look at. It will teach you more about something you love, but it will also remind you that dance is universal. It crosses boundaries, cultures and ages, and has a way of binding people together in a way that almost nothing else can." - INDUSTRY Dance Magazine 

"As its title indicates, Dancing Through History looks at how past events have shaped the traditional dances of the country's immigrant and aboriginal groups. In fact, the book reads less like a travelogue than a study of how Canada's diverse communities--in particular First Nations groups--have struggled to retain their cultures in the face of political challenges." - Carolyn Ali, Travel Editor at The Georgia Straight

About the Author

Lori Henry began Polynesian dancing when she was two years old. Although she also played ringette for many years, she ended up choosing to pursue dancing and trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip hop and contemporary styles. After high school, she attended Gastown Actors Studio in Vancouver to study theatre acting, and spent many years as a film actor.

After travelling solo to Paris, Lori caught the travel bug and began building on her growing number of writing assignments to embark on a career as a travel writer. Her work has been published in Readers Digest Canada, WestJet's up! magazine, Western Living, British Columbia magazine, Spa, FLARE, VIA destinations, West, VIA magazine (an AAA publication), USAToday.com, Gateways (Carnival Cruise Lines), among many others. She has also contributed to Fodor's Nova Scotia & Atlantic Canada, Explorer Publishing's Vancouver Explorer and Sasquatch Books' Best Places Northwest guidebooks.

I especially enjoyed the Haida dancing in Haida Gwaii... very well written! I could imagine a documentary series inspired by the authors travels.
