Getting Started with Dance Information

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, and reference sources can provide background information on a subject area. They can be used to identify key people, events, and dates which can then be used as search terms for finding additional information. Many of these sources provide a jumpstart on your research by listing related readings for further exploration.
