Through more than 200 critiques in that magazine, she confirmed a classical aesthetic framework for dance, influencing the work of numerous contemporary critics as well as the tastes of audiences.

This book explores that framework and provides an interpretive analysis of the biographical, professional and historical elements that contributed to the context of Croces work. Topics include Croces predecessors in dance criticism, relevant twentieth-century contemporaries and the journalistic philosophy of The New Yorker. Providing 10 of Croces essays in their entirety, the author discusses the three specific elements of artistic excellence that Croce consistently used in her evaluations: sympathetic musicality, Apollonian craftsmanship and the enlivening force of tradition.

Special attention is given to the literary and rhetorical qualities of Croces work. Finally, appendices offer a detailed subject breakdown of topics in Croces essays, listing (by frequency of appearance) dance companies, dancers, choreographers, dance styles, ballets, and themes.
