This publication provides suggestions for school and professional level dance program production. The first chapter contains a brief history of twentieth century costumes and settings for dance. The second chapter discusses program planning, auditions, and rehearsals. Costume design and construction are covered in the third and fourth chapters. In the fifth chapter, aspects of musical accompaniment are considered, and lighting and color are the subjects of the sixth chapter. Chapter Seven provides guidelines for technical production, including design, organization, scheduling, set-up, rehearsal, the performance, and striking the set after the performance. The eighth chapter deals with publicity efforts. A list of suggested music selections for dance scores is included and ranges from medieval and renaissance pieces to works of modern and jazz composers. (FG)
