"Teachers and students of the dance will find the help to the answers of the question 'why dance?"'—Physical Educator

"As a dance pioneer, Margaret H'Doubler combines both vision and down-to-earth practicality. It is she who established dance as a part of the college curriculum, organized the first campus performing group, and set up the first college degree program in dance."—Dance Magazine

"H'Doubler's book is the work of a scientist of dance, and so well does she present her plea for universal dance training that she certainly deserves the full attention and respect of both parent and teacher."—Walter Terry
