(perhaps the result of a connection made at the recent Kennedy Center Honors event that featured both Makarova and Letterman.)

I read it when it first came out, and then a couple of times since. I know that the Mazo book about NYCB got much more attention, but I did really appreciate this other view of that world.

I loved 'Dance as Life' and am shariong it with my Aunt, who lives in NYC and loves ballet - she's going to enjoy it very much, I think.

I'm not sure if "Dance as a Contact Sport," by Joseph Mazo, was the first book written from a "I was there" perspective, but it's certainly the most prominent one I know. To use the current term, he embedded himself with NYCB during the season just after Robbins made Dances at a Gathering -- it was an astonishing time in the history of the company, and the insights he gained with that kind of long-term research gave us an amazing look at that world.
