 "At last a book that will be of real help, value and interest to dance accompanists and teachers. Every page is crammed full of wisdom and helpful information. Harriet Cavalli's book is a very welcome addition to dance literature, and I am sure that accompanists and teachers ill find it not only useful but also a wonder source of inspiration. Whilst reading it I was constantly reminded of the maxim, of which all dance teachers are aware 'Teachers are only as good as their pianists.' "- The Dancing Times Dancing Times
