Award–winning dancer, choreographer, and bestselling author Twyla Tharp shares her secrets for maintaining mental and physical agility in one’s senior years in this groundbreaking, always-entertaining book.

Now seventy-three, Twyla Tharp is revered not only for the dances she creates—for Broadway, the American Ballet Theater, the New York City Ballet, and elsewhere—but for her astounding regime of exercise and engagement. She is famed for religiously hitting the gym each morning at daybreak, undergoing rigorous exercises with her trainer, and utilizing those drills to propel her breakneck schedule as a teacher, creator, and lecturer—and through it all looking and feeling like a woman decades younger than her calendar age.

In Forwardness, Tharp explores the variety of steps anyone can take to forestall the aging process and, more importantly, convince one’s own mind that it is truly only as old as it feels. Drawing on a variety of physical techniques, mental acuity exercises, and spiritual tricks of the psyche, Forwardness will prove to be as innovative and novel as its creator.
