Dance is part of the art of theatre, a part which connects to movement, to communication, to improvisation, and to performance. It cannot exist on its own in the context of dramatic performance, but works in conjunction with other elements to enable meanings to be created in performance.

Dramatic Dance sets a programme for actors to perform dance as part of the drama, offering several approaches which can contribute to developing this understanding, to training this skill, and always ensuring that the whole active and thinking body and mind are fully engaged with the task of making dance an integral and vital part of theatre. Author Darren Royston shows that to study dance in this way allows students to develop further their understanding of logic and structure in a dramatic text.

Many books deal with one aspect of dance or another: some on dance training, some on history and dance history, some on Rudolf Laban?s ideas, some as dance manuals, and some as academic papers. Darren Royston's Dramatic Dance is the first book to act as a comprehensive guide for theatre practice, which brings these different disciplines together.
