About the Book

This is a remarkable book in which the author presents the case, over six decades ago, about the the not so obvious link at first, between Folk Dances, Physical Education and the Integral Education of people as a whole. The most astonishing thing about this work is that when you actually read it today IT IS AS CURRENT AS WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN. The ideas presented are not only complilations of Folk Dance facts, but also dwelve into the nature of the human spirit, self pride as an individual, a culture and as a nation, and when achieving this goals, the realization that there are many more things that unite us as humankind than the differences that initially tend to separate us as different cultures and nations. Having seen the developments of World and Local History during these past decades and many of the problems that have lingered or newly developed during these times are unavoidable reminders of the complexity of international and intercultural understanding. The more you read this apparently simple work, and the more you understand it, the more profound contribution of the work is ultimately manifested: CREATING A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL THROUGH EDUCATION.
All illustrations in the book are originals researched and executed by the author herself.
