Standard Terminology

To quote the introduction to the book:

"Dance is a physical art form which is notoriously difficult to put into words, particularly the written word. It is not an exact science and there is no absolutely correct way of recording movements in a dance. It is hoped, however, that this document, by giving examples of phrasing, will offer some guidance on how movement and formations might be described."
