The Routledge dance studies reader

Carter, Alexandra and O'Shea, Janet (2010) The Routledge dance studies reader. Carter, Alexandra and O'Shea, Janet, eds. Routledge, London. ISBN 9780415485999. [Book]


This is a substantially revised and updated collection of key texts. Important articles from the 1st edition are retained, and these are accompanied by over twenty new works, the majority of which are newly commissioned from leading critical voices.
This edition offers fresh critical perspectives on classic and modern dance, ballroom, tango, hip hop, popular dance and disability in dance. Following a new introduction which traces the history of the discipline, the book is arranged in five thematic sections: Making Dance; Performing Dance; Ways of Looking; Locating Dance in History and Society, and Debating the Discipline. Each section is prefaced by editorial commentary.
