Creating a ballet school

The first 20 years of Marin Dance Theatre

Our new book is out!
In this beautiful new book, the story of Marin Dance Theatre's first twenty years is told by San Francisco historian Malcolm E. Barker and enhanced by Walter Swarthout's photography.

It recalls the determination of a handful of men and women who helped create the school in 1996, and the dedication and love of the faculty that continues to this day, enriching the lives of hundreds of young dancers. Included are personal accounts by students, current and former, recalling their experiences in a nurturing environment.

With 150 photographs (many in color), this 8" x 11" book
is a glorious record of those first two decades.
