A

In the Prologue to her book Dance and Dancers in the Victorian and Edwardian Music Hall Ballet, Alexandra Carter exercises the idea of the dance that has rushed through the epochs, leaving unique dancing styles and helping people to create the theory of dance, while the dancers put it to practice.

The key idea of the Prologue is that however many dancing styles have been created, the dance itself has remained the same. Expressing people’s feelings and ideas is the stem of dancing, and the various dancing styles can be compared to various ways of expressing one and the same idea. The purpose of the dance is the dance itself, as the beauty in motion, and Alexandra Carter knows it perfectly well.
