" Composing a book about the choreographic craft and the processes involved is no easy task. Flatt's masterful experience as an artist: choreographer, teacher and mentor, underpins this 'aid to navigating the choreographic process' with fluidity and texture. And navigate it does. Like a storyteller, she passes the baton of the craft on with distinctive descriptions and a refined understanding of the components of what makes for a choreographic process. "
