"An incredible, informative book, really well written. Having produced dance shows for 20 year and having a background in tech - I still learnt things. Even if you're new to the technical elements of putting on a show, or just want to learn a better way of working, or lighting your work - you need this book! Every dance teacher should have this book."


Sarah Gittens (The Dance Den)

This comprehensive, but user friendly guide has been written to help the dance studio or school owner get the most out of putting on their shows in a professional venue.
